RENSSELAER Polytechnic Institute
PREFACE: The Rensselaer Summer Engineering Design Program
PREFACE is a two-week residential summer experience at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for talented high school sophomores and juniors (who will enter the 11th or 12th grade in Fall 2020), from groups that have been historically and traditionally underrepresented or under-served in science, engineering, and technological fields, and are interested in pursuing careers in engineering and technological professions.
The 2020 program will focus on engineering solutions to create a more sustainable environment. In partnership with Rensselaer, the Troy School District (TSD) Community Greenhouse was initially established to introduce sustainability through agriculture; it has in addition become an important, ongoing site for senior capstone projects in Rensselaer’s Multidisciplinary Design Laboratory (MDL). Four separate capstone teams have proposed possible solutions to a variety of challenges including the harsh northeast climate and limited water and power sources that diminish the effective greenhouse growing season. Working in teams, the 2020 PREFACE students will be tasked to complete their own capstone projects, modelled on the format required of senior Rensselaer engineering students. They will be introduced to greenhouse and the challenges facing it, review the prior capstone proposals, and work with the TSD greenhouse coordinator and the engineering project manager to design, manufacture and test their own prototype solutions to increase the greenhouse growing season and productivity. In addition to the greenhouse engineering design capstone project, students will attend classes in electronics, manufacturing and CAD, and will visit Rensselaer’s engineering departments and learn from faculty members about pursuing a degree, research opportunities, and possible careers in academia and industry in each engineering discipline.
