The small projects team allows members to complete a comprehensive engineering process in just one semester. Members work in teams to develop their ideas into full CAD models, outlined BOMs, and finally, working projects which they will use to compete against other teams all in the span of one semester. In the past, teams have created quadcopters, RC boats and submarines, and RC ATVs.
Spring 2023 the small projects design teams are creating projectiles to launch as far and as accurately as possible. The time commitment is 1-2 hours a week of working in a team to prepare for a final competition at the end of the semester.
In one semester, the small projects teams created working robots to culminate in a competition against their peers to win!
