SimScale as Educational Tool


#1

Hello,

I am a high school teacher in California, USA. I am teaching a class in principles of engineering to 11th and 12th grade students. We are using SimScale on a project to design a balsawood bridge for a Math, Engineering and Science, (MESA), competition. I was very pleased with the support I received, and it was easy to get started with just a couple tutorials. The number of hours each student was given were more than ample for our tasks. It does help that I have a degree in engineering, but it has been about 20 years since I worked with any type of modelling software, so in many ways I am a newbie. I feel that with enough practice and help, just about any teacher could be using SimScale to improve their engineering coursework. From what I have seen, the staff at SimScale is more than willing to help educators, and this means a lot to me. Thanks Anna for all your help.
If anyone has questions about what we did, please feel free to contact me via e-mail.

Sincerely

Marc Wheeler
