  • Today we finished our final idea. Our final idea had to get through many prototyping, drawing and editng stages to get where we are. There were many ideas about the design and even though at first we didnt like the idea we finally came through to make it. Even our final idea had ideas because there were many different pieces to make and design and at some points it seemed like we had finalized some part we realized that there was something wrong with that idea. The idea that we finally came up with was originally pushed to the side because we thought that we had a better idea. But in fact it actually was going to be to hard to assemble and the final was a more concrete idea. Our idea went through many stages including cardboard and hand drawings.

  • In a world, where everything is so windy that anything can get blown over at any moment, there is the Tri-noceros. The Tri-noceros is a motorcycle-esque machine that can get get flipped over and still continue driving forward and backwards.

  • Zoom your way through this studio by building your own RC model of a fantasy motorcycle! Learn about all the components that make your motorcycle vroom: motors, batteries, engines, radio signals, types of chassis and wheels, and robotic intelligence.

    In this studio, students will be constructing an electric motorcycle with a fantasy theme. They will also evaluate the merits of nitro and gasoline combustion. Students will ride the waves of radio frequency and modulation, thus understanding how transmitters and receivers communicate. Other topics of discussion include on-road versus off-road suspension, how RC models compare to full-sized motorcycles, and levels of robotic intelligence (automaton, remote control, teleoperation, full autonomy). Students will experience the hands-on joy of soldering, drilling, and building circuits before applying a custom paint job for the finishing touch. Then it’s off to the races in a final exhibition where the fantasy motorcycle whoosh to save the world!

    Focus skills/subjects/technologies:

      Design

      Physics (electricity and magnetism)

      Engineering

      Programming

      Electronics

      Robotics (Arduino)

      Sensors and Actuators

      Digital Fabrication (Laser-cutting, 3d Printing)

      3d Modeling
