Constructing a Working Model of Algae Skimmer Using 3D Printed Parts LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The presenters will discuss the various phases in the development of an award-winning functional model of an autonomous algae skimmer submitted for the Community College Innovation Challenge sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the American Association of Community College. Specifically, they will discuss how the student designers used their classroom and extracurricular knowledge to incorporate 3D-printed parts, parts from a toy kit, motors, and various other objects in the model; how the students collaborated on troubleshooting and fixing design flaws; and what they learned from the experience. They will also discuss how to incorporate a similar innovation project as part of a project-based learning activity. They will use the actual functional model to illustrate the major points of their talk.
