In an introductory engineering design tools class, Kate Gleason College of Engineering students design and built robotic wind chimes. RIT University News caught up with them while they were doing final touch-ups before demonstrations and formal presentations in the first week in December. For most, this was their first semester of engineering work. While the chimes are creative and sound great, the learning experience is that students have to incorporate CAD design, use the frequency spectrum to determine sound for a song they selected and cut the chime/pipes accordingly. They also had to program different types of gears in their kit to build the ringing mechanisms...this is one of the ways the college makes the learning fun, hands-on and relevant....
