The Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation (CIVS) at Purdue University Calumet will showcase Hammond Academy of Science and Technology (HAST) student projects for Project Lead the Way on April 29, 2014.
HAST students have been working with CIVS graduate students for a year on engineering projects giving students hands-on learning experiences through the use of CIVS technology and 3D facilities. Projects include, “Virtual Downtown Hammond”, “Simulation, Modeling, and Visualization of an Industrial Boiler”, “Educational Wind Energy Game App” and “3D Printing Techniques”.
Dr. Sean Egan, Principal at HAST, commented “students love the program, the independence and content of the projects. Because of this collaboration HAST has experienced an increase in students applying at PUC and other universities.” The goal of the project was to increase student’s passion for science and technology. Dr. Chenn Zhou, CIVS Director, said “we have achieved our goal and are pleased with the outcomes. We look forward to future collaboration with HAST”.
