Fort Wayne, Ind.—Indiana Tech’s College of Engineering and Computer Sciences has developed a weeklong summer program designed to introduce high school students to electrical engineering. The students will participate in two hands-on electrical engineering projects and interactive mathematics laboratory projects.
“We want to offer students a chance to learn something and have fun at the same time,” said Dave Aschliman, dean of the college. “This is ideal for the type of student who is intrigued by figuring out how things work, the type who takes things apart for the thrill of putting them back together.”
Through classroom instruction and laboratory work with Indiana Tech professors, the students will explore electric circuit design and assembly. Students will then apply what they’ve learned by building their own electronic products, which they will take home at the end of camp.
The students will build their own AM radio and electronic musical keyboard trainer. With these projects, students will explore principles of:
The students also will get a small taste of college life by living in Pierson Center for the week, eating in the dining hall, and participating in social activities on campus.
“This is a great opportunity for students interested in science and math to learn more about electrical engineering and consider whether it might be a good major for them,” Aschliman said.
