Week 10

3D Printing

3D Printing is a form of Robotics. Using the output from a Computer Aided Design (CAD) program, 3D Printers can produce 3 Dimension Objects. This technology will allow Astronauts produce spare parts on the Space Station and on Mars, once we have manned missions. They are used today to produce prostetics, architectural models, machine parts prototypes, scultures, toys and many other products. Students will be taught the theory of 3D printers and participate in an exercise where they will use an open source program called TinkerCad to produce content. The output of the CAD program will be sent to 3D printers to produce 3D objects.

The Internet of Things

Simply stated, this idea revolves around connecting all smart devices large and small on the internet. As an example, road sensors could be routed directly to the internet to help control traffic. Implanted medical devices can communicate anywhere in the world. Wearable devices that connect to networks are IOT devices. Students will learn the theory and complete an IOT project.
