Teaching Geology in 3D

Digitalizing plaster mockups in 3D
Aurélien, Nancy, Renauld and Karla, four mechanical engineering students at Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Metz collaborated with a geology professor at Pierre-and-Marie-Curie University for a school project.
The students were in charge of creating 3D geological models with CATIA out of traditional plaster mockups according to specifications set by the geology teacher. The resulting models help first-year geology students better understand the class.
Furthermore, the 3D resources make learning science more accessible to students with various skill levels and allow a practical approach to science.
