  • Need Tension gauge guitar
  • Stem guitars-manufacturing -stemtech 2010-10-20

    1. 1. STEM, Guitars, and Advanced Manufacturing: Ingredients for a Successful Integrated Learning Experience<br />"Blues had a baby, and named it Rock and Roll“<br />Muddy Waters<br />ATE Due-0903336<br />
    2. 2. STEM, Guitars, and Advanced Manufacturing: Ingredients for a Successful Integrated Learning Experience<br />Tom Singer, Professor<br />Mechanical Engineering Technology<br />Steve Wendel, Director <br />National Center of Manufacturing Education <br />"Blues had a baby, and named it Rock and Roll“<br />Muddy Waters<br />ATE Due-0903336<br />
    3. 3. STEM and Guitars<br />r = 2 1/12 ~ 1.059 <br />Ln = L0 (1 - 1/rn) <br />
    4. 4. <ul><li>Science
    5. 5. Physics (wave motion, magnetics, frequencies)
    6. 6. Chemistry (finishes)
    7. 7. Technology
    8. 8. CNC, Laser, Electronics, Woodworking, Tool usage (power and hand)
    9. 9. Engineering
    10. 10. Design, analysis (CG), material properties, Ergonomics, IE
    11. 11. Math
    12. 12. Geometry, algebra, logarithms, calculus</li></ul>STEM Specifics<br />“It’s a long way to the top if you want to Rock and Roll” – AC/DC<br />
    13. 13. <ul><li>Easy to relate
    14. 14. Multiple levels of integration (from full blown manufacturing centers to an after school club)
    15. 15. It is Gender neutral
    16. 16. We are even experimenting with nail polish painting!
    17. 17. Students already have interest (easily recognizable)
    18. 18. High success rate for completed guitars 99% (1% just stopped showing up)
    19. 19. Relatively low cost to get started (under $1500 in tools / equipment for a lab)</li></ul>So Why does it work? <br />
    20. 20. <ul><li>It has many intangibles:
    21. 21. A confidence builder, tactile learning tasks, expands reach of program into music, arts.
    22. 22. Recruiting for the class begins with the guitar lessons instructors on campus and the music department.
    23. 23. Creates a lot of buzz on campus
    24. 24. Campus newspaper, administrators, students all take notice since it is a unique concept applied learning.
    25. 25. Local TV , Newspaper have highlighted the class
    26. 26. Local music shops and Luthier's in your area are willing to assist
    27. 27. It expands the local music community.
    28. 28. There is a network of Schools (Universities, community Colleges, and high Schools) already doing guitar manufacturing and assembly around the US.
    29. 29. We have developed the systems and materials needed for your integration. </li></ul>So Why does it work? <br />
    30. 30. <ul><li>Physics and math dept’s use guitars and string tension gauges in classes
    31. 31. 2 types of class options in MET
    32. 32. No-prerequisite class in exploring manufacturing and guitar building (students customize a pre-made guitar) over 50% are non-ET majors
    33. 33. Mini capstone -Our MET program has a end of year one capstone in design and fabrication </li></ul>How do we use it in classes? <br />
    34. 34. In the guitar manufacturing class <br />No-Prerequisites..Open to all students on campus<br />Used as a recruiting tool, expose students to a variety of basics skill sets<br />Safety and tool operation (hand and machines)<br />Use CAD to design headstock shapes for cutouts<br />Experience CNC & Laser engraving operations<br />Learn to read schematic diagrams and solder<br />Learn a bit of chemistry (finishes)<br />Get exposure to Physics and Math applications<br />It’s about Applied Learning<br />
    35. 35. In the end of year one MET capstone class – <br />Students work on multifunctional teams (in the last 2 years we had graphic art students and Mechanical Engineering Technology students on teams)<br />They design, market test and analyze designs before production<br />Apply many of the competencies learned in the first year of classes<br />It’s about Applied Learning<br />" 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. – <br /> Foreigner, Juke Box Hero <br />
