CNC/CAD - Design, Make your part and Run the Jet Engine!
This camp is all about "hands on". Use a professional CAD package, learn how to design the impeller. Along the way, learn about "design-for-manufacturability" and key manufacturing processes like casting, 3D/additive and high-precision CNC. Then make your part on a real CNC lathe. Next, use precision measuring tools to make sure your part meets spec. Finally, run the engine - yikes - this is for real.
Mechatronics - Learn about circuits, solder your board and program the roboCam!
Self-driving cars, remotely operated vehicles, robotic surveillance. What do they have in common? Learn about circuits. Assemble a servo-controlled real camera and then program it to operate wirelessly. When you're finished take home your own roboCam!
