7 The Dart Foundation Day for 7th-12th Grade Students "Our future lies in some very precious hands..." Our children are our future. Without the next generation of engineers, scientists and other professionals, the advances we enjoy today would quickly grind to a halt. At the Dart Foundation, we are committed to developing scientifically literate students in Michigan. Therefore we are delighted to help fund the MSU Department of Mechanical Engineering s Design Day for pre-collegiate students. An investment in our children s future will pay big dividends for this generation, and also generations yet unborn, in Michigan, America and ultimately the world.

8 Middle & High School Innovation & Creativity Day December 10, 2010 Precollege Student Voting: During the morning on Design Day all visiting precollege students will be viewing Engineering Projects and voting. During this time college students will have a chance to interact with nonengineering students and demonstrate the underlying principles from their projects. This interaction allows the college students an opportunity to practice explaining engineering concepts to non-engineers. As the precollege students work their way through the wide variety of presentations they will get an overview of the many different branches of engineering. Additionally, as the precollege students see both entry-level and advanced engineering applications, it allows them to see the natural progression of engineering. Lastly, this session also provides a chance for the precollege students to interact with student organizations within the College of Engineering. C.E./M.E.

Lunch will immediately follow. 6

9 VEX ROBOTICS Our team of experts has designed a lab experience to give precollege students an introduction to robots. Students will work in small groups and have a hands on approach learning to control the VEX robot. They will write programs using Robot C language and they will program the robot to be controlled by a remote control. Application and discovery of how programming works will be similar to lessons presented in science and math classes. Each team will discover how to adjust their programs based upon the program inputs and actual output (robot performance). During each phase, new challenges will be introduced to engage the students. This will reinforce new ideas and concepts while exposing student to the newly emerging capabilities of student-controlled robotics programs. INTERDISCIPLINARY ENGINEERING BUILD In this build you and your team will be integrating practices from multiple fields of engineering to build and evaluate a support system. Support systems can range from simple beams to intricate bridges composed of gussets, trusses, cables, etc. These types of systems are used throughout Civil, Mechanical and Structural Engineering works. This session will start with a brief introduction to the forces and stresses that act on support systems. Additionally, you will see how digital sensors can read and convey data about these stresses to a computer. We will also look at the computer code that takes this raw data and converts it into a format that can easily be interpreted. During the build portion of this session you and your team will be given the design constraints for the structure. Utilizing the information learned at the start of the session and the limited materials provided, your team will need to design and then construct a model to be tested. Your finished structure will be placed on one of our test beds for evaluation. With the help of MSU Engineering students, the results will be collected by a sonic ranging sensor. These data points will be interpreted by the computer program and your team will be evaluated on percent deflection of your support. Throughout this session you will need to listen, learn and utilize your team to be successful. Good Luck.

The course introduces students to the engineering profession and the engineering design process through teambased, interdisciplinary design projects and assignments. Over 600 students are enrolled in EGR 100 this semester. For the final course project the student teams of EGR 100 could choose from two projects (i) solar water heater design and (ii) Lego Mindstorm Competition. For the first choice the students had to design, build and test a solar water heater that will successfully increase the temperature of a given volume of water in a fixed time (5 minutes). The prototypes were to fit within a specified test fixture containing the water reservoirs and connection ports. The second choice required the students to build and program an autonomous robot that competes simultaneously against other robots to gather high-scoring, colored balls. Points were awarded to teams based upon the values of the balls in the team s goal area at the end of the competition. At the Design Day the teams will display a poster detailing their concepts. Precollege students will recognize the most outstanding project with awards. Dr. Buch Mr. Hinds Dr. Sticklen Dr. Walton Dr. Choi Dr. Marks Dr. Stockman Dr. Wolff Dr. Grummon Dr. Mishra Dr. Tan

18 7:45 a.m. Lake Ontario Room Third Floor CSE 498 Auto-Owners Insurance Agent Multimedia Ad Builder Auto-Owners Insurance provides many different advertising resources to their independent agents. A significant part of this service involves a set of templates of ads, which are available to their agents via their web-based Media Center. In order to make this process easier for both parties, we have created a web application, the Agent Multimedia Ad Builder, that allows agents to create print, TV, and radio ads that are specific to their agency. The web application allows agents to create profiles with basic information such as agency name and location, which is then automatically incorporated into one of the ad templates. This process makes customization much more convenient since agents simply need to pick a template they like and all their agency information will be used to create the corresponding ad. For agents who want to include their own touch of editing into the ads, we have created a basic web editor for print ads that lets them drag and drop different pictures into the template. The editor also allows them to edit the written content in place on the ad. All of the created ads are able to be previewed and saved for later visits through the application. Ads that are complete and ready for submission will be able to be sent for approval by Auto-Owners Insurance to ensure that the ads are cleared for publication.

19 The Boeing O-Show project is a joint effort between Michigan State University and The Boeing Company to develop specialized software to find and simulate an optimized path for multiple units traveling to a large number of destinations. O-Show stands for Optimize and Show. O-Show is best understood with an illustrative example of how it might be used. Imagine that there are many evaluators who are tasked to evaluate certain properties of basketball arenas in a given state within a given timeframe. In this scenario, our software allows the user to configure evaluator travel speed, number of evaluators, a starting point, maximum allowed evaluator travel distance, and a list of arenas to visit. The main goal is to optimize the routes of the evaluators in a way that minimizes the number of them needed to accomplish the mission. The software comprises two parts. First, a launcher takes the inputs for the desired problem. The launcher then feeds the inputs to lp_solve, which is a software library used for solving linear programming models. The launcher then receives the results of lp_solve s calculations, completing the Optimize part of our simulation. After that, our Show aspect of the simulation takes over. Show the visualization is written in a graphics library called OpenSceneGraph and is used to render a graphical representation of the people, places, and paths of our simulation.

20 8:35 a.m. Lake Ontario Room Third Floor CSE 498 Ford Motor Company Ford Idea Place Mobile Edition Acompany s most important assets are its employees and their ideas. In order for employees to document and share these ideas, Ford has developed an online application called Ford Idea Place. Ford employees work at many locations, including at manufacturing plants and at supplier facilities. When someone gets an idea at such a location, say on a plant floor, they may not have access to Ford Idea Place. By the time access is available, the idea may be lost. To address this issue, Ford partnered with Michigan State University, tasking a team of students with developing a mobile solution that is built on Ford Idea Place. The result is Ford Idea Place Mobile Edition. Ford Idea Place Mobile Edition consists of two custom apps, one for the iphone and one for the Android, which allow users to share ideas anytime, anywhere. It features the ability to post, view, rate and comment on ideas. Users can even subscribe to authors and categories to keep them updated with ideas that could impact their work stream. As added incentive, users are also awarded achievements for various milestones like posting their first idea. Further expanding its capabilities, the application can use the device s physical resources to attach photos, audio or video to ideas. Such functionality allows users to capture an idea fully while the platform s mobility allows these features to be accessed from anywhere, any time.
