  1. I need to compile a list of project-based engineering colleges/universities. I know that Franklin Olin College works that way but I need other options because Olin has such a low acceptance rate. My son is a sophomore this year and has his heart set on engineering...maybe mechanical but possibly electrical. He is very techy, lots of robotics, arduino, programming etc but I don't think he would survive a traditional engineering program involving lots of theory and lectures. Thank you for your input!
  2. Anyone have a kid who's engineering bent? I with this had been available for my son 5 years ago. A local teacher who runs the engineering academy at a prestigious high school has started Catapult Engineering Academy, a four-year, college-prep engineering curriculum for home schooled high school students. I had a couple of friends pilot the course last year, and they RAVED about it. Might be worth looking into if you have someone interested. I think he's got a coupon running if you register before July 31st, so message me and I can find out the code. Hope this helps someone! I'll try to help with questions if you have them, or I can put you in touch with my friend who runs it. I'm pretty sure someone on the WTM board had their son enrolled last year as well.
  3. College STEM issues seem to be a hot topic lately. I want to know what it's like to study undergraduate electrical engineering these days. Are students spending a lot of time in labs? If so, what are they doing? Wiring breadboards, using oscilloscopes? Or are they doing more pencil/math work? Does coursework vary much from university to university, or is there a standard EE course of study? Do undergrads specialize in some sub-field? Has the major changed much in the past 20 years? Besides strong math and science, what else can one do to prepare specifically for EE in college?
  4. Does anyone have experience with the Future City Competition? Dd12 is thinking about starting a homeschool team, but I don't know much about it. I'd love to know: How homeschool friendly is it? What is the time commitment for students and parent-volunteers? How much physical space do I need in my home for the model city? Did you think it was a worthwhile activity and why? Is there anything else a new team ought to know? Thanks for your help!
  5. There have been several posts lately about resources for kids interested in engineering. My own ds12 is one of those kids and I've been putting together an introduction to engineering course for him for next year. I've been really excited to find a ton of resources that I'd like to share. We're going with these: Robotics Curriculum http://robomatter.com/Shop-By-Product-Type/Curriculum/Middle-School/NXT/Robotics-Engineering-Vol.-1-Introduction-To-Mobile-Robotics-Home-School-Edition'>http://robomatter.com/Shop-By-Product-Type/Curriculum/Middle-School/NXT/Robotics-Engineering-Vol.-1-Introduction-To-Mobile-Robotics-Home-School-Edition'>http://robomatter.com/Shop-By-Product-Type/Curriculum/Middle-School/NXT/Robotics-Engineering-Vol.-1-Introduction-To-Mobile-Robotics-Home-School-Edition'>http://robomatter.com/Shop-By-Product-Type/Curriculum/Middle-School/NXT/Robotics-Engineering-Vol.-1-Introduction-To-Mobile-Robotics-Home-School-Edition Types of Engineering http://www.amazon.com/Janice-VanCleaves-Engineering-Every-Kid/dp/0471471828/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1303482010&sr=8-1 Engineering Curriculum http://educate.intel.com/en/DesignDiscovery/Curriculum/ and http://www.iteea.org/EbD/HE/he.htm Other Resources Below are other sites I've found that look good.

  6. My son is five, but he loves building things. We currently are mostly a Lego household, with the Contraptions pack and some eBay'ed Technic pieces. I know there are lots of different building sets out there that all have different pieces, but it seems that most of the brands are not compatible with each other. My looking around has turned up these major brands: Mechanical Engineering K'Nex Technic Engino Fischertechnik Electrical Engineering Snap Circuits Fischertechnik A lot of the mechanical brands have solar power add-ons now, it seems. Robotics Lego Mindstorms Arduino Fischertechnik Thames and Kosmos seems to have a kit in each area, but not really expandable from what I've seen. So, what I'm asking is if there is a recognized "best" brand in each of the three areas. I'm not going to start him on robotics right now, but just for future planning, because this stuff is expensive. I would like to pick a brand in each area and stick with that brand to prevent buying things that don't work together. Fischertechnik seems to cover all three areas, but it also seems the most pricey of the three. Advice? And I know you can do a lot of engineering stuff cheaply if you have an adult that knows what he or she is doing who can supervise, but neither I nor my husband have that skill set.
  7. Eek! I can't believe I'm posting on this board already. Where did the time go? :001_smile: My ds recently joined a teen engineering group. The kids meet every other week to work on projects. Two boys are working on an autonomous airplane, another is trying to redo a remote control race car so it will run automatically around a dirt track he built in their backyard. A couple of others are using Lego Mindstorm to try to solve a Rubik’s cube. I'd like to help my ds with some suggestions for a project. The leaders (engineers/homeschool parents) are open to just about anything. The kids can have full use of their workshop. They are using Arduino to get started. Any suggestions?
  8. Thought a few of you and any advanced middle and high school students might like this new Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WhatDoEngineersDo There's a variety of links daily that get you thinking and learning something new.
  9. Anyone have experience with these kits made by the Museum of Science in Boston? I'm tempted to order the electrical engineering book & TM. Talk me off the ledge, friends. This is pricey stuff. My dream school uses EiE. :drool5:
  10. I have an 8th grader who can take engineering classes at the high school next year but we are having a hard time deciding which ones. He is interested and fascinated by nano engineering. He also has considered programming as a career, although he does not actually know how to program yet. He has done many pre-programming activites (drag and drop programs like Mindstorm, Game Maker, Scratch, etc). We have tried a few tutorials for flash, etc, but we always hit an obstacle. I am not sure if he hasn't been ready yet for more disciplined programming of if he doesn't really have the interest in it. While I don't expect him to make a decision any time soon, we do need to make some decisions and I'd like them to be ones that make sense. Even just a little bit of sense. Any input from engineers, spouses of engineers, friends of engineers (etc) would be much appreciated. Same for programmers.:001_smile: If he takes CAD in 9th grade, he can take Civil Engineering and Architecture or Aerospace Engineering the following year. His other options are basic electronics in 9th and digital electronics 10th OR visual basic programming 9th and AP Computer Science 10th OR Web design (includes some java) in 9th and then visual basic. Given how much he likes to draw diagrams (he is often looking for the graph paper) and create...things (ie: draw devices in PHUN, a physics sand box, or create solar power plants in Minecraft or build toothpick shooters and catapults) I think CAD could end up being a useful tool for him later in life. But, if he does not go into engineering, or does not continue to use it, would his time be better spent elsewhere? So basically: How useful is CAD knowledge for a young high schooler interested in engineering as a career but still undecided about an area of specialization? Is it of any use for a computer programmer? I posted here because there seem to be many posts on this board from people connected one way or another to engineering. Thanks so much for any thoughts.:001_smile:
  11. Ds is considering a change in his major. He is currently in Mechanical Engineering but after a semester seems to find his interests turning to engineering physics and nuclear engineering. This seems, to me, to be a much better fit for him than mechanical so it's a change that I would like to encourage. Apparently nuclear engineering is something one would add on after getting a BS in another engineering field (i.e. engineering physics?). The school he is at currently does not have nuclear engineering so he would need to look around for a masters(?) program somewhere else. I would love to know what to look for in a program, how readily an out of state student will be accepted into a post-BS program, internships?, programs outside of the US?, etc. TIA :001_smile:
  12. My two boys are same age as yours and they are constantly building things with their Legos as well as making Lego shows and movies. I read your signature and found the engineering you are doing with your boys, or with your older boy. How do you do it? Does he do it alone? I would like some ideas. Dh loves to build things with them. Thanks!
  13. what are using to support it? Dd11 is showing a strong interest in it and I want to encourage her with the right information/materials/classes. I tried searching but didn't come up with specific recommendations besides a few movies. Thanks!
  14. I am posting on behalf of a friend. Her son is hs currently, in 8th grade. He is very mathy, loves science, a wonderful reader (certainly reads at a college level, as far as I understnad). His dream is MIT, Caltech or some other high end school with a great engineering program, strong science, but also great literature classes. His mom is very capable, but is nervous about high school and preparing her son properly. She is worried about not doing things 'right' such that it hinders his chances of going to a top notch school. That said, she hasn't fully researched engineering/science schools, and there may be quite a few lesser known schools that are just as good (and cheaper!) than the ones her son knows about. Can you all help me to help her? Should she do an all-in-one progrAm? Is there a site that has guidelines for her to follow in terms of record-keeping, reqs, etc? What courses would you recommend? Her son has done algebra already but not sure what else. I'll check.
  15.

  16. Ds has had bio., chemistry, and 2 years of physics. He will be in 12th grade this fall and I am looking for a science. Anyone know of an egineering textbook or course we can do at home? He would prefer something with hands on stuff he can do at home. I just can't see not doing science but am at a loss. Barb
  17. Has anyone sent/or is sending their dc to Drexel or any other school like this? Would you be able to tell me the requirements. This is for Engineering and/or Architecture. Dh is worrying about ds not having what he needs. (I think he will have what he needs...he will also have about 27 credits). (FWIW: Someone here did give me an Architectural Drawing Course book to get...looks good)
  18. If your child has taken the path of engineering... what would you recommend without the shadow of a doubt? What would you say is an absolute must in the middle and high school years? What math courses should be completed by 12th? Obviously through Algebra II... but what else have they done? How about science... bio, chem and physics... anything else? Which curriculums have you used for Math and Science? I know Dolciani comes highly recommended for math... are there others? How does Jacobs do with Algebra? I hear alot about it for Geometry...? How is Jacobs in comparison to Chalkdust? Are these curriculums teacher friendly?, as well as offering and teaching the depth that is needed? :bigear: I am ALL ears to the hive sistas!
  19. Think! It is a wonderfully simple idea that our children have had enormous fun with. I would love to know if there are any more out there like it?
