This outreach program is geared towards exciting the next generation of manufacturing engineers in the United States. A major component of our outreach work is geared towards taking the micro/nano-scale manufacturing concepts and converting them into the language of Lego. These hands-on Lego modules are then presented to the middle and high-school students. Sponsored by Nano-M3 Design Lab at RPI.
This presentation will introduce the importance of the development of alternative energies to reduce America’s traditional dependency on oil. Wind energy will be the focus of the presentation as the technology will be described. The presentation will then focus on the engineering designs of the wind turbines. The hands-on activity will involve the students in designing the wind turbine blades. Sponsored by CURENT Engineering Research Center
