Creative Afternoon for Engineering Students

It was just a casual Friday afternoon, but the engineering students were challenged in their Physical Sciences lab to build a table-top fan using minimal resources and recycled materials: leftover cardboard and repurposed Styrofoam coupled with an inexpensive motor, a basic switch, and a battery. Beaming with enthusiasm, the students ended up working after lab hours to successfully build and demonstrate their fans.

“I was excited about the students’ enthusiasm, and I liked how they tried to improvise and use innovative methods [to build the fan] considering they did not have an elaborate set of tools,” said Julian Bennett, Physical Sciences course faculty. “The whole idea of science is to understand how things work, and this exercise gave them the opportunity to apply certain scientific principles that they have learnt in the past.”
