In this camp, students are going to learn about the basic electric terminology, the physics behind the semiconducting material, how the electrons are moving in the solar cell. Students will have a chance to work with solar cells to make a small solar panel, so students will get a chance to work with soldering and heat gun. Students will learn how much it is going to cost to install a solar energy system in their homes. Students are going to work on the Alternative Energy snap circuit Kit and some other solar STEM educational kits that allow students to develop safely and easily deal with electronic projects. We may visit a 10kW solar energy system installed at John Bardo Center on campus.

Students will work with partners to build and program a robot using the LEGO SPIKE Prime kit and the LEGO SPIKE 3 block based programming environment.  Lessons and challenges will be based on a drivers license test theme. This camp is for students who already have had experience programming with the SPIKE Prime robotics system.

(Please only register for one session; the same material will be repeated in both sessions.)

This advanced VEX camp is designed around the new 2024-25 VEX competition game (to be released on April 27th).  Campers will work in groups to build and program the new Hero Bot using VEX V5 robotics kits.  Once groups have learned to control their robots, they will develop and practice strategies for playing the game.  An unofficial scrimmage will be held at the end of the week to see how well the groups have progressed.  Students should have experience with building and programming with VEX V5 to attend this camp.

CMfgT provides manufacturing professionals with a technical background in the manufacturing of composites. Students examine each of the fundamental processes of composite manufacturing, and where individual processes fit within the overall fabrication scheme. At the end of this course, students will be able to identify issues and potential deficiencies on the factory floor that may impact the safety of composites used in aerospace structures.

This course covers the essential topics pertaining to composites engineering and the certification process. Its contents provide students with an awareness of the composites engineering framework through course materials and practical applications through online discussions. Topics include engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, and certification of composite materials associated with civil aircraft structures. The course content is in accordance with FAA AC 20-107B (Composite Aircraft Structure).This course was developed through the collaboration of Wichita State University, industry subject matter experts, and the Federal Aviation Administration. The course is taught online, includes all teaching materials, and features real-world discussions facilitated by those with subject matter expertise and FAA representatives. Depending on prior knowledge, experience, and level of student involvement, attendees typically spend six or more hours per week, reviewing materials, participating in online discussions, and testing their knowledge.After finishing a 1-week period of self-study of fundamental composites and successfully completing an examination in CSET-A, students proceed to more advanced topics through an on-line, interactive learning experience via Blackboard. Teaching methodology includes online discussions facilitated by subject matter experts, content in PowerPoint slides available for download, and audio/visual aids. As an asynchronous learning process, the schedule is very flexible, with students determining their time schedule and participating at their convenience during each week of class.
