Welcome to TAME Engineering Adventures! Every month we strive to bring you engineering activities that will help you challenge your TAME Club students with hands-on learning.
Take it to pieces! This month's Adventure demystifies devices by taking them down to their (still sometimes mysterious) component parts. It's a classic way to help your students build confidence and think like problem-solving engineers.
Students can take apart all kinds of devices -- from clocks (easy) to laptops (intermediate) to toaster ovens (difficult) to cars (expert) – and then try to put them back together. This month we're offering suggestions on how to tackle this kind of project with your own TAME Club. It's a great way to get your Club members to start thinking like engineers in preparation for our STEM Competitions.
