This paper describes a student-designed Bluetooth speaker project intended for use in a summer recruiting event aimed at high school students. Although recruiting is not a problem for the main campus of UNIVERSITY, it is a challenge for most of the satellite campuses. This project was chosen because Bluetooth speakers are very popular among teenagers, and it provides a nice vehicle for studying a number of engineering topics. As such, it simultaneously markets the local campus and exposes students to multiple engineering disciplines, thus helping them choose a major that fits their interests.
This paper describes the design of the speaker and its enclosure, integration of the components, and how it is constructed during the camp. Additionally, it explains the camp goals and structure, including schedule and accompanying educational activities, along with the parts source(s) to assist others who may want to replicate it.
