The materials on the Web site demonstrate how teachers can use the software to teach astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, entomology, geometry, and more. Dassault said educators have been tapped to create materials from lesson plans to teacher's guides that help others use Cosmic Blobs effectively in the classroom.
Developed for MacOS X and Windowsoperating systems, the Cosmic Blobs Lab Pack is scheduled for release in April through Dassault's SolidWorks division with special pricing for schools through resellers.
