Umass Amherst College of Engineering Girl Scout's Day Gr 4-4
Have you ever wondered where the energy to heat your house comes from? Thought about the carbon footprint of all the electronic devices you interact with? Have you watched Shark Tank and wondered how successful ideas eventually end up in stores? UMass Amherst students from the Society of Women Engineers will help you develop your inner product designer! From observing new ideas, to troubleshooting and redesign, you'll think about how you might transform a common device to be more sustainable or environmentally friendly. Then experience the challenges of taking a "design to market" by working together to create a team solar car. You will complete and receive the Product Designer Badge by the end of this workshop. Pizza lunch and morning snack will be provided.
