Discover projects for their students to capture their interest in engineering and design. Participants see real-life examples of a project-based classroom where students work with Arduino's, Raspberry-Pi's, microcontrollers, sensors, 3-D printers and CNC Routers. Student project examples range from high-altitude ballooning with handmade sensor packages, robotic greenhouses, quadcopter drones, portable computing devices, underwater remotely operated vehicles, electric drag-racers and a host of other student-led technical projects. All participants will get overviews of the projects, resources needed, advice for getting started, sources for funding, technical resources and advice, and methods for assessment. We will show you how to unlock your students' creativity while presenting a challenging, technical curriculum. Presented by an career design engineer turned educator, you will learn how to turn a fun project into project-based learning guaranteed to thrill your students. (Presenter(s): Alan Carp, Mathematics, Engineering Teacher, STEM Coo, Demonstrated Success, and Karen Matso, Demonstrated Success)
