Engineering campers look at soils, GPS, Hot Wheels design challenge

Day 2 of Fresno State’s Summer Engineering Experience Camp  features  two sessions from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today (June 28). Scott Peterson, civil and geomatics engineering professor, will discuss geomatics with the use of global positioning systems (GPS) and AutoCAD to create digital terrain models in Engineering East (Room 101) and  Dr. Lalita Oka, civil and geomatics engineering  professor, and Lyles College of Engineering graduate students will help campers discover soil foundations and learn how soils influence the design and layout of high-speed rail tracks  in Engineering East (Room 102). Walter Mizuno, mechanical engineering professor, will conclude the camp from 2 to 4 p.m., Friday in Engineering West (Room 130B) with “Car and Track Design” followed by a design challenge using Hot Wheels in the Engineering East foyer. The camp, hosting 40 high school students, also includes a field trip to the NASA Research Center in Mountain View on June 30. Full camp schedule: https://bitly.com/.
