Teamwork Challenge Course at UVA’s Poplar Ridge

leave a comment »

A group of junior and senior boarding boys participated in University of Virginia’s Poplar Ridge experiential learning program.  The boys started off solving problems that required them to complete tasks by overcoming physical obstacles while thinking outside of the box all while working as a team.  Then they had the opportunity to try out “The Nessy” which is an off-the-ground activity where beams are suspended in the air by movable cables.  One team member would cross the beams while the members on the ground stabilized them using the cables.  Please check out our slide show HERE to see what fun they had!

Students Visit the Bio-Inspired Engineering Research Laboratory at the University of Virginia

leave a comment »

On Sunday, November 14th, students from the Miller School of Albemarle Design/Build classes and robotics team visited the Bio-Inspired Engineering Research Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UVa.

The Bio-Inspired Engineering Research Laboratory (BIER Lab) at the University of Virginia is an internationally recognized center for biologically inspired engineering research, with the primary goal of designing an autonomous robotic manta ray. Current research teams are engaged on a broad array of issues related to reverse engineering of biological systems, including: active tensegrity structures with integrated actuation, electro-active polymers (artificial skin/muscle), central pattern generator control, and hydrodynamics.

During the visit, Professor Hilary Bart-Smith, founder of BIER Lab, introduced research activities and education at Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Dr. Joe Zhu gave an example of “design and build” at BIER Lab.  Students learned what today’s engineers do in real world situations and what state-of-the-art software and equipments they are using for research.
