MEAMapalooza 2012!

April 25, 2012 @ 4:00 pm

Five classes.  213 students.  One event.  It’s time for MEAMapalooza 2012!
will be toys, games, engines, passive dynamic walkers, autonomous
mobile robots, chess sets, a custom radio-controlled submarine, music,
food, and much more!  
We will be taking over the second floor of the Towne building this Wednesday, April 25th from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. to
give the students from the following classes a chance to display the
products of their creativity, engineering skills, and very hard work:
101 –
Always a treat, the results from this semester’s class are certainly no
exception.  On display will be some amazing toys, games, and other
creations, along with an array of incredible press-fit objects, dynamic
3D printed objects, and much more.
201 –
This semester we have seen the well-known Stirling engine take on forms
never before imagined.  We will be running live demos of these amazing
little machines, so be sure to dust up on your thermodynamics!
248 – The final project in the MEAM Sophomore labs has focused on passive dynamic walking.  You won’t want to miss this.
501 –
When it comes to advanced CAD and machining, this is the best of the
best at Penn.  This year, the class has explored the boundaries of the
3D-printed form, created machined works of art from blocks of Aluminum,
custom machined a pair of absolutely stunning chess sets, and together
they have designed and built what could possibly be the world’s most
amazing remote-controlled submarine.
520 –
The students in this year’s Introduction to Robotics class have
programmed a robotic arm to paint with light and play golf, and now
they are programming autonomous mobile robots to navigate a slalom
course with no human intervention.  This is yet another event you won’t
want to miss.
you can see, it’s been a busy semester, so please come out to share in
the excitement and see what Penn’s amazing engineers can do – I can
guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!  And please feel free to pass
this along to anyone that you think might be interested.
event is being brought to you by the following instructors and teaching
assistants:  Jonathan Fiene, Peter Szczesniak, Christine Kappeyne (101), Michael Lautman (101), Adam Libert (101), Paige Willoughby (101), Sydney Jackopin (201), William McGill (201), William Price (201), Nikolay Vladimirov (201), Philip Dames (248), Michael Kofron (248), Nick McGill (248), Yash Mulgaonkar (520), Haofang Yuan (520), Lucas Hartman (501), and Nick Parrotta (501).
