MS2 Summer Enrichment Program (Introduction to Engineering Design)

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.
