Engineering Meets Design - With Multi-Material 3D Printing 
Matthew Gibbon
Gina  Scala
 
Friday 9:00 - 9:45 
191 Wilber Hall (Polymer Classroom)

Repeat: NONE

The array of colors that exist in 2D printing today are nothing less than mind-blowing. Today, anything you see, you can print on a flat substrate. Did you ever wonder if it is possible to engineer this same reality in 3D? Will that 2D printing technology ever meet 3D printing technology? The answer is yes, the technology is already here and it is much easier to implement in your classroom than you may think. During this session, we will show you how to use software that you already have in your lab such as Adobe Photoshop and Autodesk Inventor to add colors, logos, textures, and more to 3D models. We will show examples of those models in their 3D printed forms from the Stratasys J55 multi-material printer and leave you wondering how you can utilize this simple workflow to bridge the gap between your design and engineering programs thus peaking student engagement and the real-world skills that are dominating engineering design careers today.
Bridging the Gap: From Grants to Business Partnerships

Friday 9:00 - 9:45 
203 Park Hall (Design Lab)

Repeat: NONE


It is imperative to promote equity for all students when scaffolding STEM instruction and activities to promote narrowing STEM gaps. Not every district is equipped with similar resources and this, in turn, may drive students’ perception of STEM and then their career choice. The purpose of this presentation is to prepare educators and administrators with a toolbox for grants and business partnerships to narrow achievement and resources gaps in any school district. To achieve these goals, the following are addressed: 1) finding and securing grants and partnerships, 2) tapping into the regional workforce development board, and 3) providing templates for securing successful partnerships with grant writing tips and tricks.

Repeat: NONE

Oswego KidsTech is a community outreach program where technology majors at SUNY Oswego plan and teach STEM activities and lessons for elementary-aged children. STEM 4 Kids is for K-3 and Young Inventors is for Grades 4-6. We applied for and received funding from National Grid to update curriculum offerings to align with the Standards for Technological and Engineering Literacy (STEL). After 9 years of successful programming, we have reenvisioned our programs to have both a greater impact on the teaching and planning skills of our technology education majors and more fully expose participating children and parents to all eight STEL Technology and Engineering Contexts (TECs). Our new articulated K-6 program may have implications for K-12 alignment with the STEL TECs and our fall 2021 STEM-based activities and learning segments may be of interest to both elementary and middle school teachers.
The Impact of Interactive Synchronous Hyflex on Student Academic Performance
Cameron Ott
 
Friday 2:30 - 3:15 
191 Wilber Hall (Polymer Classroom)

Repeat: NONE

This presentation will provide an overview of an undergraduate design thinking course utilizing an Interactive Synchronous Hyflex approach. Our flipped design thinking course leverages active learning requiring the instructor and students to interact extensively. We piloted an Interactive Synchronous HyFlex learning environment where students participate on a daily basis in person or synchronously online which led us to wonder if students’ academic performance differs in the HyFlex environment compared to the face to face only environment? We compared grade data from the course offered as a face to face only experience to the course offered as a HyFlex course enabling remote participation. Come see how the Hyflex model was implemented and the impacts of Hyflex on student academic performance.
