Outreach Results

High School Summer Camp

In Summer 2018, I teamed up with my collaborator, Dr. Krishnan Suresh, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and our graduate students, Mike Stees (KU) and Subodh Subedi (UW-Madison), to offer a high school summer camp (for students entering grades 9-12) at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. This was a 10-day camp which met for approximately 2-2.5 hours per day. The focus of the camp was computer-aided engineering. The students learned about CAD modeling and finite element analysis based on unstructured meshes. The campers completed projects individually on these topics.

Middle School Summer Camp

In Summer 2019, I teamed up with Dr. Krishnan Suresh and our graduate students, Fariba Mohammadi (KU) and Aaditya Chandrasekhar (UW-Madison), to offer a middle school summer camp (for students entering grades 6-9) at the University of Kansas. The two-day summer camp was entitled "Imagination to Creation Computer Modeling & 3D Printing" and focused on geometric design, computer-aided design (CAD) modeling, meshing, finite element analysis, and 3D printing.
