With SOLIDWORKS Apps for Kids, we are creating an ecosystem of apps to empower kids to learn about design, engineering, creativity and making things in a fun, easy, and friendly environment. Learn more today!

Putting Stem Education First

FIRST Robotics allows teams of high school students and mentors the opportunity to work and create together to solve problems, all while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

SOLIDWORKS is the modeling solutions partner for FIRST, providing engineering and documentation tools like SOLIDWORKS Premium and SOLIDWORKS Composer. Our software assists in the creation of the Game Manual, Field Drawings, and Field Assembly Instructions for FIRST Robotics Competitions (FRC) and FIRST Tech Challenges (FTC).

Growing from Student to Engineer

The world needs designers and engineers who can think creatively, collaborate easily, respond to changes quickly, and solve problems fast. By competing in design contests, students not only sharpen these skills, but also prepare for a competitive workplace.

SOLIDWORKS helps thousands of student teams worldwide by providing tools for use in student projects. Learn how you can get involved in one of these SOLIDWORKS-sponsored student programs today!
