Workshop

Students are introduced to engineering concepts as they explore the roles of force and motion in designing moving mechanisms. Using two-dimensional mechanical linkages, they create mechanisms with various inputs and outputs that move in distinct ways.

*Offered December–January.

Topics:
Disciplinary Core Ideas: ETS1.A Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems; ETS1.B Developing Possible Solutions; ETS1.C Optimizing the Design Solution
Science and Engineering Practices: Defining Problems; Designing Solutions
