Enrich education in the pre-college environment by providing teachers with enhanced science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educational content through the mechatronics workshop. Our principal objectives are:
In hands-on project activities, teams of 2 to 3 teachers will work with the program personnel on real-world engineering projects involving modern measurement and control systems. The projects will introduce the teams to various engineering disciplines. All projects will utilize modern instrumentation and computer-based DAC tools. Specifically, teachers will integrate sensors, actuators, electro-mechanical components, DAC boards, etc., to design measurement and control projects. Carefully selected laboratory projects relevant at grade 9-12 levels will excite and motivate the teachers to excel in these projects.
