Cornell Tech Partners With Technion For Robotics Workshop Yesterday At Roosevelt Island Campus Teaching NYC High School Students Reverse Engineering, 3D Printing, Internet Of Things & More

Professors from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and their partners at Cornell Tech Jacobs Institute collaborated yesterday conducting two Robotics workshops for NYC high school students at the Tata Innovation Center on the Cornell Tech Roosevelt Island campus.

The first workshop was on Engineering and 3D Making.


According to the workshop sylabus:
Students will dissect a small machine, analyze how the parts function, then design and 3D print their improved solutions. Students will learn the principals of design thru reverse engineering and develop skills in project analysis, digital design and making.
The students, including several from Roosevelt Island, reversed engineered a computer fan component, redesigned it and 3D printed the new fan in the


Cornell Tech Makers Lab.

The second workshop


was learning about the internet of things by making a smart connected robot:
Students will create an app to control a robot using the internet of things platform ThingWork. The Cloud dashboard they produce will direct the robot to use sensors to weigh and sort objects. Students will learn Internet of Things concepts, smart connected products and robot communications.
Cornell Tech Director of K-12 Education Diane Levitt tweeted
Ms Levitt adds:



Earlier in the week, the Technion robotics instructors, led by Professor Igor Verner, held robotics workshops for NYC High School teachers as well.

Cornell Tech and Technion hope to do more such workshops in the future.
