3D game-based learning

Paris 3D gameDassault Systèmes presents 3D game-based learning applications in the Future Classroom Lab:

  • History, Architecture: "Paris 3D", a historical journey through 5 centuries of the architecture and urban organization of a major European capital. Through collaboration with historians and archeologists specializing in the study of Paris, teams from Dassault Systèmes rebuilt Paris in 3D at different moments of its history.
  • History: "Khufu", Discover the New Khufu's Pyramid Pyramid Building Theory. French architect Jean-Pierre Houdin was able to test his theory about the construction, 4,500 years ago, of the Cheops pyramid. Teams from Dassault Systèmes, created a life-size virtual simulation of the construction method Houdin imagined, and verified it as plausible.
  • History, Technology: "DDay", Dassault Systèmes' 3D technologies to build bridges between the engineers of yesterday and today by preserving the memory of their remarkable technological innovations.
  • Life Sciences: "Staying Alive", a unique 3DEXPERIENCE to learn, through an online 3D simulation how to save a virtual person suffering from cardiac arrest.
  • Life Sciences: "All Eyes" project is a social 3DEXPERIENCE that offers everyone the ability to see through the eyes of animals you are familiar with.
  • Earth Sciences, Technology: "Ice Dream project", turning icebergs into drinking water? Through 3D virtual experiences and scientific simulation, French engineer Georges Mougin has recently been able to test many scenarios and prove his project to be technically feasible: towing icebergs for freshwater!
  • History: "Operation Lune", in collaboration with the French Navy and the Marine and Submarine Archaeological Research Department of France, Dassault Systèmes has reproduced virtually, and in 3D, the wreck of La Lune, Louis XIV's flagship, which sank off the coast of Toulon in 1664, thus helping underwater archeologists to make the most of their interventions, while offering historians and internet users a virtual submarine dive to the remarkably well-preserved wreck.

A 3D extended textbook associating interactive 3D online content to several topics is also provided. This experience has been implemented for the technology track in French technology high school by educators, Dassault Systèmes and the Hachette Technique publisher, and has proven an efficient way to flip the technology class.
