With two convenient summer camp locations, Engineering For Kids Summer Camp allows students to design, create, test and improve solutions to real-world challenges with hands-on experiments in a fun environment, from robotics and video game design to physics and 3D printing.

Summer Camp classes begin Monday, June 12 and will run through Friday, Aug. 11. Classes are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and typically last one week with two 3-hour sessions in the morning and afternoon.

Tadini, who had trained first as a doctor and then as an engineer in the Venetian army, came to Rhodes specifically to fight the Ottoman empire. The first thing he did was eliminate the haphazard nature of military tunneling. He put the citizenry to work creating a well-planned underground network in and around the walls, making a kind of grid of established tunnels.

People who know Charity Majors describe her as a force of a nature, a combination of smarts, grit, hard work, attitude, wisecracks, and a genuine knack for fixing broken things.

They also know she's a secret weapon among the tight-knit community of the Valley's star engineers, those folks that can command salaries of $1 million a year between pay and stock, by helping them find the cool new job openings before anyone else hears of them.

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have been exploring the applications and commercial potential for triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) since 2012. These so-called TENGs essentially harvest static electricity from friction.

Now a team of researchers at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in South Korea have overcome one of the hurdles preventing the technology from gaining wider adoption: low power output. To do this, they have developed a new polymer that serves as a dielectric material.

Dielectrics are electrical insulators that become polarized when an electrical field is applied to them. The polarization and depolarization that occurs in dielectrics when in the presence of an external electrical field have made them attractive candidates for the charge and discharge of electricity.

The TENG devices themselves consist of two different materials that are rubbed together. In this way, materials that tend to give off electrons, such as glass or nylon, will donate them to materials that tend to absorb them, such as silicon or teflon. By converting mechanical energy from friction to electricity, the TENGs can power small electronic devices.

The researchers say the technique opens the possibility of creating wireless biological heart pacemakers, treating epilepsy, or even constructing brain-machine interfaces that use electromagnetic signals to communicate with human cells.

Engineering students from George Rogers Clark High School ended the school year with a boat race at College Park’s pool. In a twist, though, their boats were made of only cardboard and duct tape.

The class, taught by Maria Richards, has spent the entire year learning the fundamentals of engineering as part of Project Lead the Way.

The program offers project-based classes for students with specific interests, such as engineering, to learn through advanced courses that may even earn them college credit.
