Engineering Students Complete Infinity Gauntlet Challenge

Engineering Students Complete Infinity Gauntlet Challenge

Students in Mrs. Capps’ Principles of Engineering (POE) class are creating an engineering project where they must design an infinity gauntlet that has six functional LED’s. Students get to decide if they are building in series or in parallel. The project requires students to solder the circuit together and create the foam construction of the hand. In their engineering notebook, they include the calculations for Ohm’s Law, V=IR, for their chosen circuit design. 

POE  is a sophomore-level survey of engineering course meant to be taken after the Introduction to Engineering course. It is part of the LSU Pre-Engineering Pathway. The course exposes students to some of the major concepts that they will encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study or in a technical career field. POE gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APPB) learning. Students also learn to work in teams to develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges. Students also hone their 21st century skills by documenting their work and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community.
