EMAGINE Your Future
The Academically Gifted and Talented students participated in the Clemson EMAGINE Your Future Program on Saturday, February 22, 2014. Students had the opportunity to work with Clemson faculty and students to test their creativity and technical skills in a series of three engineering challenges. They included:
- Civil Engineering-Learn engineering and design principles by building a tower and foundation to support a wind turbine.
- Electrical and Computer Engineering- Discover the basic of controlling a robot’s motor and reading from its sensors-touch, light, color and ultrasonic to design- to build and program to accomplish a given task.
- Mechanical Engineering- Use a principle model to design a paddleboat. Test and re-test to see what can make it go faster, go farther and stay afloat the longer.
It was a wonderful, hands-on learning experience!!
