10 October 2015: Workshop “Radical Engineering: Answering the Unanswerable” for high school students from South Auckland
This workshop was the fifth in the series of six workshops on STEM subjects for South Auckland youth run by STEM-TEC and CoLab at AUT's South Campus over August-October. The workshops are supported by a $19,000 grant from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) initiative "Unlocking Curious Minds". The presenter of this workshop was Associate Professor David Wilson – AUT Director of Industrial Information and Control Centre.
In spite of the school holiday, twenty five students from South Auckland schools attended the workshop. The participants were building a wave machine using jelly babies and controlling the drones flying outside of the venue. Three prizes (vouchers of $100, $70 and $30) were given to the most active participants.
