We work with the middle school Gateway to Technology program to introduce 6th, 7th and 8th-graders to engineering and research tools in the automotive industry. Our latest activities are summarized here: GTT Event Video.
Using high-speed image analysis to determine dynamic phenomena (same as used in vehicle crash testing). Students calculate velocity and acceleration to derive forces.
GTT teams and support (21 4-person teams, 20 volunteers from AuE and IE Depts.)
