Camp Teaches Students Entrepreneurial Skills & Applications of 3D Printing in High-Tech Operations
High school students in greater Tampa bay area are set to vicariously embark on a space mission to help astronauts 3D print parts for a robotic arm using additive manufacturing techniques while gaining understanding of the entrepreneurial process.
Curriculum for the high school engineering & robotics camp is based on a fun concept whereby students will be tasked to help astronauts on a space mission. Campers will 3D print parts for a robotic arm using Solidworks, Arduino microprocessors, servo motors and additive manufacturing techniques to design a functional robotic arm while gaining an understanding of the entrepreneurial process. They will learn how to program an Arduino microprocessor to operate servo motors, and troubleshoot the design to manufacture a prototype of a tool that could be used in space. Campers will also learn about the pros, cons and costs of using 3D printing in space and manufacturing custom tools to create a sustainable living environment in space.
WHAT: Robotics & Engineering Camp for High School Students
WHERE: Hillsborough Community College-Brandon
July 27: Overview of Advanced Manufacturing, SolidWorks and 3D Printing in Space
July 28: Manufacturing process using Arduino, Servo motors & SolidWorks
July 29: Made in Florida Industry tour to Chromalloy Castings in Tampa
July 30: Assembling of the robotic arms. Video of finished product at http://youtu.be/
July 31: Final Student Presentations demonstrating robotic arm prototypes
With the support of Nuts, Bolts, and Thingamajigs®(NBT), the Foundation for the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, the High School campers will take home the Arduino microprocessors and 3D printed projects that they manufacture during the camp.
