Introduces the fundamentals of machine tool and computer tool use. Students work with a variety of machine tools including the bandsaw, milling machine, and lathe. Instruction given on the use of the Athena network and Athena-based software packages including MATLABĺ¨, MAPLEĺ¨, XESSĺ¨, and CAD. Emphasis on problem solving, not programming or algorithmic development. Assignments are project-oriented relating to mechanical engineering topics. It is recommended that students take this subject in the first IAP after declaring the major in Mechanical Engineering. From the course home page: This course was co-created by Prof. Douglas Hart and Dr. Kevin Otto. (less)

MASLab (Mobile Autonomous System Laboratory) is a robotics contest. The contest takes place during MIT's Independent Activities Period and participants earn 6 units of P/F credit and 6 Engineering Design Points. Teams of three to four students have less than a month to build and program sophisticated robots which must explore an unknown playing field and perform a series of tasks. MASLab provides a significantly more difficult robotics problem than many other university-level robotics contests. Although students know the general size, shape, and color of the floors and walls, the students do not know the exact layout of the playing field. In addition, MASLab robots are completely autonomous, or in other words, the robots operate, calculate, and plan without human intervention. Finally, MASLab is one of the few robotics contests in the country to use a vision based robotics problem. (less)

Learners tour their school or home looking for sources of indoor air pollutants (IAPs). After cataloging these sources, learners can analyze and display their data in different formats: bar graph to show frequency of pollutant types; map to show locations. Resource contains suggestions for assessment, extensions, and scaling for different levels of learners. (less)
