This hands-on workshop will introduce faculty to an entry level Mechatronics course (Concepts of Electronics) taught to high school students at a distance in Nebraska and Minnesota. It is the first of 4 courses being designed to deliver to high school students. Attendees will learn best practices for delivering technical course work online, assemble a trainer and perform lab exercises designed for high school students.
All participants will take their finished trainer (valued over $300) home and be asked to create a lab with the trainer to share with other workshop attendees and the iMEC community. A bill of materials and curriculum will also be made available. Teams of a high school instructor and State/community college faculty are encouraged to attend as a team. The workshop is FREE, lunch will be provided, and attendees will take their trainer home to use in their own classrooms.
