IEEE participated this year in HESTEC by showcasing many projects in the Engineering Lobby. Meanwhile, we hosted a classroom where we were showing the students how to put together a circuit, and later we used 6-in-1 Solar Kits to teach the students about solar power. We also participated on Community Day. We sold Fried Sweets at one of the food booths and also held a 6-in-1 Solar Kit class in the engineering building.
In the main showroom, the Engineering Lobby, we showcased our biggest projects. Amongst them were our newest additions; the Rock’em Sock’em Robots, and the LED Side Scroller. We also showcased our LED Wall, LED Cube, and the LED Hockey-table. This year we had members of the club design the animations that would be shown on the LED Wall. Of these projects the Robots and Hockey-table were interactive and we had many participants try them out. The image to the left is of the two robots many of our members created together. On the right is an aerial view of the robots in the midst of a battle.
The class on RGB circuits turned out to be too complex for some of the younger groups that we presented it to, but it was a good thing that we still had the 6-in-1 Solar Kits. Every year the 6-in-1 solar kits have proved to be a hit amongst the younger and older generations. There were six projects to choose from, a Solar Puppy, a Solar Car, a Windmill, two different Solar Airplanes, and a Solar Boat. IEEE held these classes on the Circuits and the Kits all week long. Below are some pictures of our officers and members helping out the participants in between classes.
On Community Day, we also held 6-in-1 Solar Kit Classes indoors and had our projects on display in the lobby. On top of that, we sold Fried Sweets at a booth. Our menu consisted of fried Twinkies, fried Snickers, fried Twix, fried 3 Musketeers, and fried Penguinos. Needless to say, they were quite delicious, and the officers and members had a blast making (and eating) them. Below are some images of our members at the sale, including one of our Head of Department supporting our Fried Sweets sale.
