Team Engineering Day

Can your team successfully design the hull of a ship in virtual reality?

For Grades 8 – 11 | Lunch Provided

Experience  hands-on, innovative technologies to explore virtual reality, augmented reality and laser scanning using engineering design principles in this challenge. Students will design a ship hull in virtual reality, create their hull from a laser cutter, and test their design in a towing tank with augmented reality! Explore engineering principles of stability, buoyancy, and function in this exciting workshop employing real-world applications of STEM design modules in advanced manufacturing!
