First Year Engineering 2021 Expo
Northeastern’s First-Year Engineering Students’ inventive projects, games, and exhibits were on display on December 3, 2021 in the Curry Student Center.
Students created original board games, interactive projects geared to teach children sustainability concepts, autonomous sumo robots ready to battle, and prolific prototypes to help solve a wide range of problems. From a roof gutter invention that transforms run-off water to energy to a computer game-like museum exhibit illustrating how turtles are impacted by the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, inspiration was in the air.
Each project challenged students to apply the engineering concepts introduced this semester, which includes the Engineering Design Process, Solidworks, AutoCAD, Programming with C++ and Matlab, and controlling microelectronics with Arduino.
