This program is designed to introduce high school students to the basic concepts of digital smart lighting. In doing so, students will see the applications go a step further than the general concept of lighting an area.
In partnership with the Consortium for Additive Manufacturing (CAM), the Department of Mechanical Engineering is offering a summer immersion experience for the Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science (MS) 2 focusing on Introduction to Engineering Design. The program is organized around two 2 - week sessions; each session will have a cohort of 15 students. The student will be introduced to engineering design through an entrepreneurship challenge requiring student groups to identify problems, design solutions to those problems, and manufacture those solutions using 3D printing.
The students will have specific sessions teaching them the engineering design process, solid modeling and Computer Aided Design (CAD), as well as digital manufacturing. The program culminates in a pitch session where student groups pitch their business idea by demonstrating their designs in front of a panel of judges. Dr. Grant Warner, a faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering leads the program.
NFTE DC Region's Global Girls Entrepreneurship Tech BizCamp offers female students the opportunity to learn a tech-infused NFTE Entrepreneurship curriculum in a highly interactive and intensive 2-week camp setting. Through field trips, guest speakers, industry exposure, and engaging activities, participants learn the basics of putting together a business plan including technological platforms while also developing valuable academic and life skills.
The (PCES) program emphasizes the fundamentals of electrical engineering concepts, and sustainable energy with smart grid concepts. Several design projects using simulation tools for power system analysis for power system design are also introduced.
The Howard University Summer Transportation Institute (HUSTI) program is designed to attract rising 9th and 10th grade students to career fields in transportation. HUSTI provides a stimulating introduction to all modes of transportation through hands-on projects, problem-solving techniques, field trips, classroom and enrichment activities. Participants will gain skills in mathematics, science and technology.
The Ambassadors of Engineering program managed by the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department engages Howard University undergraduate engineering students in outreach from K-12 grades and the general public, and promotion of careers in engineering. Ambassadors run hands-on earthquake and coastal engineering challenges at large-scale public outreach events and schools throughout the Washington DC area. Inquiries about the program should be directed to Dr. Claudia Marin-Artieda, by phone 202-806-6580 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
