Major: Mechanical Engineering
This presentation explores architecture through an engineering perspective. The history of structures, fundamental engineering concepts, and a structural analysis of modern buildings are all included. Using these understandings, a look into the future of architecture is possible.
The Engineering Ambassadors will introduce the National Academy of Engineering's grand challenge of providing clean drinking water to the world. Students will learn about our planets natural filtering process, the water cycle, and how a similar process has been engineered to filter our water. A portable solution to providing clean water after natural disasters will be introduced. The student's culminating consists of creating their own gravity filter. This presentation is best suited for an Earth Science class or a Living Environment class, but can also be applicable to a chemistry class.
