This is where i want this website and project to build from. I need other people interested in engineering, and other peoples ideas to learn. If anyone has questions, interesting information, or a valid subject topic please post it!! Thanks.
I'm done with this period of learning from this process, but why would i stop. I've learned so much and i enjoy what I'm doing. Therefore after all this work i may slowly but surely keep this up. I know i will continue using Physics Forums for questions, and my grandpa is always open to questions as well.
I interviewed my grandpa for 1 hour and 15 minutes. He did an hour and 13minutes of the talking. I loved it.... My grandpa is my mentor and you need to be dang ready to listen to your mentors wise words.
It's near process dead line. I'm about done with the information i've gathered for others benefit. Afterwards I'll start on my full diagnosis of my own personal career plan. I really have learned so much from my experience, probably the most important information I'll learn in high school.
The last 2 questions were something i remember my grandpa telling me when I was younger. I feel a great job can be even better when retirement can be looked at with stocks and investments from 35 years before.
On March 16th, 2012 DO-IT students went to the UW's Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering to learn about the field and complete a learning lab. Students learned about signal processing in the visual cortex, observed action potentials in a cockroach leg, and operated a "carbot" that was controlled by electrodes that sense muscle movements. Afterwards, DO-IT students helped create a video about the event!
The CSNE website states "Over the last decade, the field of neural engineering has demonstrated to the world that a computer cursor, a wheelchair, or a simple prosthetic limb can be controlled using direct brain-machine and brain-computer neural signals. Future technologies that allow such accomplishments will enable versatile and highly complex interactions with sophisticated environments. Intelligent systems and robots seek to sense and move like biological systems, and devices implanted in or interfaced with neural systems attempt to process neural data robustly, safely, and in a functionally meaningful way. Doing so requires a critical ingredient: a novel, neural-inspired approach based on a deep understanding of how biological systems acquire and process information. This is the focus of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE)."
Today is the second day of my research and study into engineering. Last night I found a wonderful website showing median ranges of engineering pay, and another site showing the top ten out of college bachelor degrees. Almost every one was an engineer faction.
I’m attempting at making a website to show my research on. Hopefully I can blog each day about what I do, and show some of my statistics, and eventually present everything from there.
I’ve began the website and it’s going well.
Notes Day #2
· The top ten undergraduate paying jobs out of college are all engineering jobs.
Today is a day for research. I have a sight setup, now I just need to keep adding information viable to my subject.
I added links to my website which is going to give me a much better route for presenting my project.
It’s my fourth day on this project and my site is up, links are ready. I’m going to do research abroad today. I may also start researching into individual fields.
No longer going to put any notes on here, simply paste them straight to my website.
I've been spending too much time trying to journal then transfer that to my website. I want to add a program to my website to allow random post-its about my research.
My website is a project in which i will be explaining diversities in engineering. Each day i hope to keep and post a record of things i learn, goals, and subject maters. Here is day 1 of my Project journal
Today is the first day, first beginning to my project. My first order of business is to find my interest, create a plan, a list of materials, and research materials.
TOPIC: Showing the diversities of engineering, and matching individuals to their strong point.
1. Research into engineering abroad.
2. Watch videos on explaining engineering.
3. Read one book on engineering in general.
4. Understand statistics of engineering. (Record info.)
5. Research into colleges and programs for engineering.
6. Know the best ways to prepare yourself for engineering.
7. Take a journal page every day showing my progress.
8. Match one individual to his or her strong field.
9. Research into areas that will be, and are prominent positions for work.
10. Start a blog on engineering. (Find a good website)
11. Email organizations/ colleges for information.
12. Interview Grandpa. (Create interview questions)
Materials for Presentation
1. Paper cut out of graphs.
2. Brochures on engineering.
3. Computer for possible journal presentation, or PowerPoint.
4. Compelling information from books and companies.
5. Possible interview with my grandfather. (Write then record, or record)
6. Utilize skills of presentation to keep audience enthralled.
2. Library biography or engineering outline books
4. College/company replies
Notes Day #1
· Engineering is the discipline, art, skill, profession, and technology of acquiring and applying scientific, mathematical, economic, social, and practical knowledge, in order to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes.
· Types of Engineering-Aerospace, Agricultural, Architectural, Bio/Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer/Software, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Metallurgy and Materials, Mineral and Mining, Nuclear, Ocean, Transportation.
· Subgroups of engineering encompass over 50 specialties after the main 17 classes.
Hello everyone! This is my personal web site and I want to share it with all of my friends and family. Please feel free to post and tell me what is going on in your life.
