Summer Engineering Workshop Overview
High school students will work collaboratively with Dartmouth faculty, staff, and students to design, build, and test an engineering prototype to address a problem or need of their choosing. Hands-on activities throughout the workshop will help them explore and understand engineering. Students will present their final designs during a celebration open to family and friends.
The workshop is designed for students to:
- Experience the creativity of engineering and the many interdisciplinary opportunities it offers
- Develop engineering skills, including problem-solving and design skills
- Use computer-aided software for design (SolidWorks) and machining (such as 3D printing, laser-cutting, and rapid prototyping)
- Have fun!
