In this digital lab, students will learn about 3D printing in medicine through the exploration of prosthetic arms and hands. Once the students are introduced to the company E-NABLE and to how their prosthetics work, they will be learning about CAD, drawing, and dimensioning. Collectively using what they’ve learned, they will be tasked with designing their own prosthetic finger.
In this digital lab, students will learn about the different types of manufacturing, specifically the 3D printing process, and the implications it has in today’s society. After an introduction to Tinkercad, the design software the students will be using, they will have the design challenge of creating a puzzle with various-sized pieces that must fit into one another. This task will emphasize the importance of precise measurements. They will then have the opportunity to create their own design of their choosing.
In this lab, students are introduced to the forces that an airplane experiences in flight. They will try to maximize the lift of their paper airplane designs and optimize lift to drag ratios to complete the distance or flight time challenges. Students should use the skills learned in this lab to design an accurate and precise paper airplane model. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this digital lab, students will learn to build an app using MIT App Inventor.
In this digital lab, students will receive a hands-on introduction to this cutting-edge field, learning the importance of using novel technologies to diagnose and treat diseases with a genetic basis. Using a brief list of symptoms and their newfound knowledge regarding bioinformatics, students will diagnose two patients, Patient X and Patient Y, while compiling information about the proteins involved in their respective diseases.
In this lab, students discover and learn about the scientific and real-world aspects of bridges. Students will explore and design their own bridge. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this digital lab, students are introduced to cybersecurity. They will learn about topics including phishing attacks, malware, hacking, artificial intelligence, and more. The activity will involve practice with different encryption techniques and ways to hide information from hackers.
In this lab, students will learn about the process of drug delivery in the body. By applying fundamentals of transport via diffusion across membranes and pharmaceutical drug encapsulation, students will design a small-scale staged release drug delivery system. Students will assess how effectively they can utilize various materials to encase differently colored tablets in water to stage their release of color in an order predetermined by the student. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this lab, students are introduced to the history, development, and design features of electric vehicles. Students will learn how to build their own electric vehicle and gain an understanding of this burgeoning technology. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this digital lab, students are introduced to the development and applications of embedded systems and taught how to make their systems using a TinkerCad simulation of the Arduino Uno device and the Arduino programming application.
In this lab, students are introduced to some of the major impacts of climate change and presented with a way to lessen its effects. They will learn how engineers can help to decarbonize the world economy and what role green hydrogen can play. Students will apply chemistry techniques to build an electrolysis cell in order to produce their own green hydrogen. Material will be provided at no cost.
Students are introduced to the concept of machine learning and the iterative engineering design process through the design, construction, and testing of a catapult. They will then experiment with the catapult in order to develop a mathematical model that can be used to make predictions of how the system will perform. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this digital three-part breakout, students are introduced to the concept of networks and their real-world applications. In the first two parts, students will use online software and a linked Google spreadsheet to solve the classic Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). In the third part, they will have two options: For novice programmers, students will use mBlock, a block coding software, to program a virtual drone to travel the route they solved for in the previous part. If students have more familiarity with coding, students will explore a Python program in Google Colab to model and solve the traveling salesman problem.
This lab will allow students to play the role of a biomedical engineer. They will learn about sunlight, and its characteristics, as well as some characteristics of the human body. Using this knowledge they will critically think in order to discover a treatment for Grover’s disease. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this lab, students are introduced to renewable energy, where they will learn about the benefits of renewable energy sources in contrast to the dangers of non-renewable energy sources. Students will learn how to build their own solar-powered and wind-powered turbine prototype, while trying to keep their costs as low as possible. This reflects how today’s engineers work to lower the cost of renewable energy sources in order to make them more appealing to the public. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this digital robotics lesson, students will utilize block coding to move a virtual robot in a particular manner. Students will learn the basics of coding, including how to use variables, loops, and conditional statements. Throughout a variety of activities, students will put their coding knowledge to the test. The final activity will be navigating a virtual robot through a maze. Students will use the Coding Design Process to craft their code and iterate their designs.
In this lab, students are introduced to the basics of sound, where they will learn about vibrations, frequency, pitch, and real world examples of how these affect our ears. The students will then conduct a lab experiment, trying to reduce the noise pollution of a certain sound. Material will be provided at no cost.
In this lab, students are introduced to spacecraft, launch vehicles, and orbits. They will use simulations to test and explore physics and vehicle design. They will also analyze the design of rockets through testing and iterating a balloon rocket. Material will be provided at no cost.
Students will learn about the water treatment process. By applying fundamentals of wastewater treatment in order to design a small-scale filtration system, students will assess how effectively their designs produce “cleaner” water. Material will be provided at no cost.
