Electronic Engineering students bring their final projects to life

Just one week before graduation, TMI’s Electronic Engineering students had a chance to show off their final projects. Their imaginations were the limit as they developed and refined their ideas, using either the Arduino programmable microcontroller or Raspberry Pi to bring their creations to life. Some were even able to make use of the school’s 3D printer to design and create parts for their projects. By the end of the semester, students rose to the challenge and demonstrated their work, which included an acoustic levitator; alarm system; automatic pet feeder; a twin-authentication security system; robotic arm; quadricopter; and music-coordinated, light-show system.

Join Me In The Cloud

I’ve been a long-time user of Google Docs and Google Classroom as a part of my teaching practice, so I was thrilled when I received the go-ahead from TMI to open up a Google Classroom for my AP English Language and Composition course. I explained to my juniors that a benefit would be that they would no longer have to wait for a mutually convenient Flex Time to have a writing conference for reviewing their in-progress drafts. Rather, they could “join me in the cloud” – day or night – to get feedback on their writing in real time or to look at later.
