Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

The mechanical engineering curriculum is based primarily around the concepts of Newtonian mechanics. It is therefore vital that all incoming freshman understand how these laws apply to everyday life and know how to effectively use them in their engineering career. These ideas can be most effectively understood in a laboratory setting in which the students can physically see the laws proven, as well as test their hypotheses. A new laboratory to teach these concepts to incoming freshman will be implemented into the curriculum Fall of 2013. The goal of P12361 is to design apparatuses that will help students conduct a total of six experiments.
