This is an exploration of a variety of STEM activities. The main projects will be: Day One - Airplanes: students will build a rubber band powered balsa airplane. The learning objectives will be a mindset of precision, use of X-Acto hobby knife, and familiarity with a variety of adhesives. There will also be an introduction to basic aerodynamic principles and instruction with flying a Cessna 172 at Centennial Airport on Microsoft Flight Simulator. Day Two - Microcomputers: students will be exposed to a variety of single-board computers and the associated IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) for programming them. The SBCs will include Micro:bit, Adafruit Feather, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and NVIDIA Jetson Nano. There will be a short introduction to coding. However, the main objective is to help the student set up their own low-cost development environment for learning on their own. Day Three - CAD and 3D Printing: students will learn how to take existing designs and print them on the 3D printer. There will also be an introduction to TinkerCAD and a summary of the industry standard programs Autodesk Fusion 360 and SolidWorks. Day Four - Rockets: students will build and fly an Estes model rocket. We will discuss more advanced rocketry through high-powered rockets. This practicum is limited to six students so that there will be plenty of one-on-one time with Mr. Russon.
