Collaboration with M E 430 Students

TELSA members have recently been working with Penn State and the College of Engineering in hopes to enhance children's learning experiences through hands-on innovative exhibits. M E 340, is a mechanical engineering course offered through Penn State's College of Engineering that is intended to provide mechanical engineering students with the fundamental tools to produce an effective design solution in a realistic professional environment. These students work with TESLA members to develop exhibits that provide engaging science experiences, which ultimately spark creativity, curiosity, and imagination. Students in M E 340 will design an exhibit for Discovery Space, which will be tested by children, then revised if necessary, and eventually these exhibits will be placed on the museum floor for all guests to explore. Collaboration between TESLA and M E 340 students bridges the gap between the College of Education and the College of Engineering.
