In the Spotlight

This month, we would like to share a story from our Turkish SOLIDWORKS reseller. Thanks to our reseller’s introduction, the kids in Turkish schools have fun with SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids.

Apps for Kids Highlight "February" Edition

In 2021, Serap ÖZGÜL, Information Technologies Coordinator at Sınav Eğitim Kurumları, met with TEKYAZ team, one of our Turkish SOLIDWORKS resellers. Sınav Eğitim Kurumları is a private institution established in 1992 that includes more than 78 Turkish schools and involves over 8,000 students. The institution is now the largest education chain in Turkey with publications, private teaching institutions, courses and schools.

At that time, the Turkish schools already had an online 3D Design software for the 7-12 age group. The TEKYAZ team introduced the SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids program, which has been created to enable students in this age group, to learn engineering, mathematics, space intelligence, science, and technology more effectively. The introduction of SOLIDWORKS APPS for Kids was the most exciting moment of the day for Serap ÖZGÜL when she realized how K12-level kids could create while having fun. And the program has been rapidly adopted and implemented.
