  10. 10. #nafnext MCHS Internship Simulation 2013 Problem Statement: A local Nursing Home is in need of an elevator that will allow them to expand their center to include Three Floors for Residents and support staff. Design Statement: Your team must design the control system and a prototype of an elevator that can go between three floors in any combination. The prototype must include a set of three switches to represent each floor of the elevator. Each floor the elevator stops at must have a call button and a set of three lights to indicate where the elevator is currently located. A built-in safety mechanism requires that the elevator normally rest on the ground floor and return to the ground floor after a user-determined period of nonuse.
  11. 11. #nafnext MCHS Internship Simulation 2013 The Elevator needs to meet the needs of the nursing home including but not limited to: • Moving Residents and their personal belongings from Floor to Floor • Handicap Accessibility • Emergency Stretcher Accommodations • Dual Side Access • Located in Central Area Expectations/Deliverables: • Use the 12 Step Design Process • Determine Best Placement of Elevator(s) on the Floor Plan • Design how the Elevator will look, aesthetically, using AutoDesk Inventor • Build the Prototype using the Vex Robotics Equipment • Program the Prototype using EasyC Cortex • Create a Portfolio with complete documentation • Present Results to AOE Advisory Board • Convince the Board to Fund your Project!!!!

  13. 13. #nafnext Your Challenge Task: To Create an Internship Simulation that can be implemented at your school for your academy students. Use Your “Internship Simulation Creation Tool” Step 1: Creating Internship Tasks/Deliverables/Timeline: 1. What do you want your students to be able to achieve and produce by the end of the internship? 2. How many students can you accommodate? 3. How long will your internship last? 4. Where will you hold the internship? 5. Who will be your “client” or judge of the deliverables? 6. Who will facilitate the students?
  14. 14. #nafnext Your Challenge Step 2: Funding 1. What are some possible resources for compensating the students? (please be specific ex: carwash fundraiser, NACME grant, donations) 2. How will you compensate your lead instructor/facilitator? Step 3: Application and Interview 1. Who from your board can conduct the interviews? (be specific when naming your resource) 2. What will your application packet include? Step 4: Student Grouping 1. How will you evaluate the students to figure out which students should work together to complete the internship tasks?
  15. 15. #nafnext Your Challenge Step 5: Execute the Internship Simulation. Imagine planning an internship for a week. 1. What are some tasks and outcomes for Each Day(1-5)? Step 6: De-Brief and Evaluate 1. What could be some possible roadblocks that you may face from your administration? School? Or District? 2. How will you evaluate the student’s performance? (rubric, voting) 3. Once the internship is over, how will your team debrief and evaluate the summer internship?
