High School Students Discover Engineering with ME Professor’s Help

High School Students Discover Engineering with ME Professor’s Help

Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Ken Kiger delivered an overview of mechanical engineering to a group of 29 high school juniors and seniors in late July for the Discovering Engineering summer camp program. The students had the opportunity to explore different engineering disciplines, and participated in a variety of activities including laboratory work and demonstrations, lectures, discussions, computer instruction and a team design project.

Kiger led an activity where students built a small steam-powered boat, which they raced down a waterway. The activity integrated some core principles of mechanical engineering, and connected those concepts with what they had already learned in high school.

Kiger was selected as a Keystone Professor in 2006. The Keystone program honors those faculty committed to fostering an outstanding undergraduate education.
