A.L. Brown engineering students work with researcher at NCRC

KANNAPOLIS — A.L. Brown High School students in Jordan Baker’s introduction to engineering design class are working with Dr. Carol Cheatham at the North Carolina Research Campus to help design tools for her research.
Cheatham, a brain researcher at the UNC Nutrition Research Institute, studies the cognitive ability of toddlers.
She gave the engineering students flawed or broken tools and asked them to redesign them for her.
The students used AutoDesk Inventor 3-D Modeling Software to redesign the tools, and they presented their results to Cheatham for her feedback.
Based on her comments, the students will now redesign the final products using a 3-D printer and present them to Cheatham in January. She will use the tools in her research.
