Abstract

This paper describes the use of a computer-aided design (CAD) software package as a vehicle for outreach to high school students. Particularly, this research effort afforded pupils at a secondary school in central Pennsylvania the opportunity to participate in a program that was designed to accomplish the following: • To stimulate interest in engineering and design. • To provide the user with an opportunity to perform a legitimate structural design, based on a realistic set of design specifications and constraints. • Provide participants with an opportunity to use the computer as a problem-solving tool.
