Intro to Mechanical Engineering August 5-9 1PM-4PM
Discover the world of mechanisms & motion. Learn about levers, gear trains, flywheels, & robotics. Investigate the torque-speed trade-off in gears & use your knowledge to design a Lego transmission system. Create a hydraulic-powered robotic arm & hurl projectiles with your custom-built catapult!
Taking Flight into Aerospace Engineering August 5-9 9AM-12PM
Watch your rockets blast off hundreds of feet into the air! Learn the fundamentals of Aerospace Engineering, design, build, and launch your own model rockets. Then complete a challenge to design and construct your own balsa wood gliders, just like the Aerospace Engineering students at NC State!
Line Following Robots: July 29-August 2 1PM-4PM
Design & build a robot from scratch that can navigate a track by itself! Get ready to discover the power of electronic hardware design. Learn about voltage comparators, optical sensors, transistors, pulse-width modulation, & more. Then compete against other robots to see who can get the fastest lap!
Intro to Electrical Engineering July 29-August 2 9AM-12PM
Start your journey into the exciting world of Electrical Engineering & electronics hobbying! Design and build an electronic musical instrument played with a wave of your hand. Learn to use LEDs, resistors, capacitors, & integrated circuit chips, then solder the entire circuit together to take home!
