A Picture Worth 100,000 Dots

Have your photo taken and transformed into a unique piece of TSP art. Known as Traveling Salesman Problem art, it uses math to convert an image into 100,000 dots and then draws a single line to connect all the dots. If you drew it by hand, you would use one single stroke without lifting your pencil. Math helps us figure the best route. Stop by and take home a printout of your own custom TSP art.

Solar Amusement Park

Students are introduced to the world of creative engineering product design. Students choose a theme park ride that they want to build that is run ONLY by a solar panel and simple motor. As students begin by defining the problem, they learn to recognize the need, identify a target population, relate to the project and identify its requirements and constraints. They then create and test prototypes, and re-design to optimize their solutions.

Mobile-NEWT Trailer

The Mobile-NEWT (Nano-Enabled Water Treatment) is a customized, enclosed trailer with a dimension of 14'x7' on a dual-axle for easy hauling and deployment. It is built with a large concession side-window for public viewing, interaction, education and for the dissemination of knowledge on Nano-technologies based water treatment. The overall goal of the Mobile-NEWT is to incorporate the advances of Engineering Nano-materials (ENMs) into modular water treatment systems. The ENMs integrated devices at the Mobile-NEWT are tested under actual field settings to validate Nano-based technologies in further driving innovations under the continuous-flow and water treatment conditions.
