    Mechanical Engineering Technology

  • STEM and Guitars
    r = 2 1/12 ~ 1.059
    Ln = L0 (1 - 1/rn)
    • Science
    • Physics (wave motion, magnetics, frequencies)
    • Chemistry (finishes)
    • Technology
    • CNC, Laser, Electronics, Woodworking, Tool usage (power and hand)
    • Engineering
    • Design, analysis (CG), material properties, Ergonomics, IE
    • Math
    • Geometry, algebra, logarithms, calculus
    STEM Specifics
    “It’s a long way to the top if you want to Rock and Roll” – AC/DC
    • Easy to relate
    • Multiple levels of integration (from full blown manufacturing centers to an after school club)
    • It is Gender neutral
    • We are even experimenting with nail polish painting!
    • Students already have interest (easily recognizable)
    • High success rate for completed guitars 99% (1% just stopped showing up)
    • Relatively low cost to get started (under $1500 in tools / equipment for a lab)
    So Why does it work?
    • It has many intangibles:
    • A confidence builder, tactile learning tasks, expands reach of program into music, arts.
    • Recruiting for the class begins with the guitar lessons instructors on campus and the music department.
    • Creates a lot of buzz on campus
    • Campus newspaper, administrators, students all take notice since it is a unique concept applied learning.
    • Local TV , Newspaper have highlighted the class
    • Local music shops and Luthier's in your area are willing to assist
    • It expands the local music community.
    • There is a network of Schools (Universities, community Colleges, and high Schools) already doing guitar manufacturing and assembly around the US.
    • We have developed the systems and materials needed for your integration.
    So Why does it work?
    • Physics and math dept’s use guitars and string tension gauges in classes
    • 2 types of class options in MET
    • No-prerequisite class in exploring manufacturing and guitar building (students customize a pre-made guitar) over 50% are non-ET majors
    • Mini capstone -Our MET program has a end of year one capstone in design and fabrication
    How do we use it in classes?
  • In the guitar manufacturing class
    No-Prerequisites..Open to all students on campus
    Used as a recruiting tool, expose students to a variety of basics skill sets
    Safety and tool operation (hand and machines)
    Use CAD to design headstock shapes for cutouts
    Experience CNC & Laser engraving operations
    Learn to read schematic diagrams and solder
    Learn a bit of chemistry (finishes)
    Get exposure to Physics and Math applications
    It’s about Applied Learning
  • In the end of year one MET capstone class –
    Students work on multifunctional teams (in the last 2 years we had graphic art students and Mechanical Engineering Technology students on teams)
    They design, market test and analyze designs before production
    Apply many of the competencies learned in the first year of classes
    It’s about Applied Learning
    " Bought a beat up six string in a second hand store. Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure, that one guitar felt good in his hands. –

    How to Integrate: the first step
    • Low level: use a guitar as a learning tool in the classroom (reverse engineer, designs, applied Math and Physics) Curriculum & models are available on guitarbuilding.org
    • Medium level: Test a sample build of a small quantity of guitars by using a school club or after school project. Sell the guitars at a profit to help purchase tools etc.
    • High level: Become one of our supply chain partners in manufacturing and applied learning of the guitar tools. Needs a fairly large lab space that can get dusty.
    Many levels of integration
    • Low level: use a guitar as a learning tool in the classroom (reverse engineer, designs, applied Math and Physics) Curriculum & models are available on guitarbuilding.org
    • Medium level: Test a sample build of a small quantity of guitars by using a school club or after school project. Sell the guitars at a profit to help purchase tools etc. Build a guitar as part of a club or as team exercise in a class
    • Minimal tool cost
    • Sanding station, basic hand tools, basic electric drill and bits, soldering tools, wet dry vac
    Many levels of integration
    • High level: Become one of our supply chain partners in manufacturing and applied learning of the guitar tools. Needs a fairly large lab space that can get dusty and have storage.
