Our class is a basic introduction to engineering design where students will learn how to take an idea and turn it
into reality. We start out with the process design and along the way the students will learn about sketching and
technical drawing. Ultimately they will create a 3D-model of their idea using computer aided design and be able
to print it using one of the MakerBot 3D printers that we have.
I've attached a few pictures of projects that we do in class, one is a project to redesign a playground and another
is to come up with an idea for a child's toy. As with the majority of the work that we do in our class, they are open-ended
problems as I feel that the most important aspect of our class is showing the students the power of their creativity and helping them develop their problem solving skills. I also included a couple of images of a keychain accessory project I started last year where our students used the skills they learned in our class and a bit of creativity to create a keychain accessory out of something that represents something that interest them.
I got my BE in Electrical Engineering from Cooper Union and I am a NYC Teaching Fellow and got my MST from Pace University.
I have taught at Tech since 2005.
