Designing and Building a Telescope Base

Project Objectives: Design a base for an existing telescope, using 3D printing and laser cutting technologies that will allow the direction and angle of the telescope to be remotely controlled. Remote access is done through an Internet app. The research project provides an activity where you learn how to develop engineering, problem solving, and programming skills through hands-on experience that includes production and assembly.

Number of undergraduates needed: 2
Minimum qualifications: 2nd year engineering student. Knowledge/familiarity with SolidWorks (for the design part); Programming experience (for the app design)
