Lesson 3 – Continued Computer Science and Electrical Engineering

On Saturday October 24th, Access Engineering held their third lesson of the semester. The sections this week spanned biological engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science and electrical engineering.

Students in the mechanical engineering section continued working with SolidWorks and designing catapults for next week’s competition. Students made the bases for the catapults out of Lego pieces and had the arms of the machine 3-D printed in Penn’s labs.

EES students worked with Arduino again and learned about how to make networks. Biological engineering got a preliminary overview of the subject in anticipation of the upcoming project. Finally, the computer science sections continue to learn about basic Java and arrays.
