Last month students got to do one of our favorite projects: Drawing Machines. This project allows students to experience energy transfer–chemical to electrical to mechanical energy. The conversations that happen feature deep, creative thinking. This is problem solving disguised as an engineering project!
Ashley Lippard, parent of 2 of our students and professor at George Fox University, brought some of her design students to our rooms today. They helped our students to create a branding and logo for their drawing machines. What a way fun way for our students to close out this project and to be exposed to some possible career choices if product design has sparked their interest!
