Brainstorming Session: "Developing a New Learning Activity

Julianna Lin, University of Rochester
CfAO Conf Rm

The goal of this brainstorming session is to develop a hands-on learning activity that uses elements of inquiry but is geared toward the engineering problem-solving process. This activity could be used in CfAO short courses that prepare students for internships in both engineering and science, such as the Akamai Observatory Short Course, the Akamai Optics Short Course, and the Mainland Internship Short Course.
