Our Engineering students participated in a trebuchet launch challenge this afternoon outside near Northwestern’s view of Lake Michigan.

What exactly is a trebuchet? Just listen to the students in the interviews below!

Northwestern McCormick School of Engineering (Design)

July 26, 2017 | 12:04 pm

Our Engineering students participated in a design-process brainstorm session this morning at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering. In the afternoon, they will actually prototype their one-handed-world designs in the Segal Design Institute shop!

More photos from the morning ideation session can be found here on Flickr.


Working Group

July 24, 2017 | 9:44 pm

Our Engineering students were hard at work this evening, building their sea perch robots and brainstorming products for pitch day in their TA small groups!

Check out more photos from the working session here on Flickr.


Engineering Rotations

July 23, 2017 | 8:00 pm

Our Engineering students spent the afternoon learning how to code, solder, and give an outstanding presentation or product pitch. These rotations give our students both the technical and people-centered skills essential for any professional engineer!


Sea Perch Competition

July 15, 2017 | 11:30 am

Our Engineering students competed in a Sea Perch Competition last night that was full of wired-ROV’s, impressive team-work, and (sometimes broken) propellers!

Check out the video from last night’s awesome competition below!

Prototyping Workshop

July 12, 2017 | 9:41 pm

Our Engineering students took their ‘one-handed’ designs from the morning’s ideation session and created a working prototype in the Northwestern University Segal Design Institute this afternoon.

Check out all the creative fun in the video below!

Trebuchet Challenge

July 11, 2017 | 5:39 pm

This afternoon, our Engineering students attempted to design, create, and launch a trebuchet in a little over an hour; team-work and communication were definitely needed in this exercise!

Check out a few of the pre-production photos (before the rains hit!) here on Flickr.


Sea Perch Competition

Tonight our Engineering students tested their TA group underwater and above-water robots in action — competition style!

Watch the video below for the last of our Engineering team exercises!

Trebuchet Competition

July 01, 2017 | 2:27 pm

Our Engineering students designed, created, and launched their TA group-trebuchets¬†along beautiful Lake Michigan today — and all before lunch!

Here’s the winning shot! More photos can be found here on our Flickr album.
