Program Description

In the first week, students will learn what biomedical, chemical, electrical, mechanical, civil, and environmental engineers do in their jobs through speakers and hands-on activities. Students will use Arduinos and 3D printers to explore areas of engineering in greater depth and to see how math and science provides a basis for technology innovation. In the second week, students can apply their skills and explore several design and fabrication techniques. The fundamentals of CAD software will be covered with an emphasis on producing functional components. Students will have the opportunity to use basic shop tools as well as laser cutters and 3D printers to complete their projects. Projects may incorporate the Arduino microcontroller as taught in the Introduction to the World of Engineering Course. Students must be present for the mandatory safety training taught on the first day of week two to continue in the course.
