UAH Discovery Days-Round Three!

At the final UAH Discovery Days event of the 2016-2017 academic year, CRW presented their launch vehicle, Viserion, as well as discussed the field of engineering to prospective engineering students and their families. During the event CRW met approximately 500 individuals interested in mechanical or aerospace engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

The team introduced the NASA SL program to the audience and described their product in detail. This was done by detailing the design, construction, and selection of the vehicle components and the roll/counter roll induction payload. In addition to the introduction of the NASA Student Launch program, CRW discussed the field of engineering and opportunities in engineering such as internship and co-op programs with local companies.

 

FIRST LEGO League Alabama Championship

On March 4th, CRW assisted at the FIRST LEGO League Alabama Championship at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. The students at this event were judged on their ability to design and program an autonomous robot using a small micro-controller, a project that informed others of a new innovative product that would aide in the relationship between animals and humans, and how the team demonstrated the FIRST LEGO League Core Values. Members of the team served as judges and had direct interaction with roughly 100 individuals between the ages of 8-14 years.
