During the Fall semester, students focused on hands on physical projects using breadboards, motors, switches, LEDs, and simple circuits. They created projects such as making homopolar motors, scribble bots, boats, and a final mini project where they solved a small problem. Some projects focused more on design and entrepreneurial aspects while others where more detailed in mechanics and function. Throughout the Fall and Spring students who attended Friday sessions worked with animation (2D and 3D).
