Abstract

EET Project Session in a Project Lead the Way Conference for Local High School StudentsOctober 1st, 2010 was the date of our 2nd annual Project Lead the Way Conference for local highschool students. We hosted 100 students from four schools in the area, giving them some hands-on experience with projects in EET, MET, and IT. There was also a careers session and acampus tour.This paper provides some general background about the conference and its participants, thendescribes the EET session in detail, including the student-created project that was its centerpiece.The project, which was created by a sophomore EET student, compares the relative efficiency oftwo different forms of motor control: resistive and pulse-width-modulated. This project wasimplemented using Multisim version 11, and the data collection and plotting was performed withMS Excel 2007.In addition to the project, we discuss feedback from the teachers who brought their students tothis year’s conference, and how the EET session format was modified to accommodate feedbackfrom the previous year.
