FIRST Newsletter: Sean Fitzpatrick Says FIRST has Something for Everyone

“Not many students can add the title of CEO to their resume before they graduate from high school, but Sean Fitzpatrick, a member of FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 2877, the “Ligerbots,” will be doing just that.  As a senior this fall at Newton North High School in Newton, Massachusetts, Fitzpatrick will take on the role of CEO for the Ligerbots.

What’s Axeda and Why Did PTC Acquire It?

Imagine it: The smart, connected world — a place where the products that improve our lives are connected to the Internet, and to each other. The possibilities for product development companies are endless.

But for manufacturers to be successful in the connected world, they’re going to need the right tools – software that allows these highly innovative products to be properly connected, deployed, and managed.

Designing Innovative Floodwater Defences for Tunnels with PTC Creo

You’re an engineer and a raging storm is heading to your town. A tidal surge is inevitable. Your job is to protect the subway from flooding. What are your ideas?

You might think about a better drainage system and pumps. Maybe floodgates. But it’s all too little, too late, and too expensive. The winds are picking up. What’s your other idea?

US Homeland Security asked Ever J. Barbero, a West Virginia professor who specializes in advanced materials in engineering, for his ideas, and here’s what he proposed:

Designing a Better Grain Dryer at Delux

In agriculture, equipment is often kept in service for decades. Farmers can, and sometimes still do, plow fields with the same 1940s tractor that their grandparents used. Grain elevators, hay balers, seeders, and combines remain the foundations of production, as they have been for generations.

And that’s a design challenge.

The Best Engineering Managers Monitor Manufacturing Closely

Engineering managers have enough challenges bringing a successful product to market. That’s why it’s important to make sure that internal processes aren’t part of the problem, according to a new report from Aberdeen Research.

Team Motorbolts Celebrates Three Years of Robot Design and Action

Most 13-year-olds play online games in which they create avatars, gather resources, collaborate with others, develop their agility, and fight for survival. But in the town of Edina, Minnesota, middle school kids are drawing on those same instincts to wage real-life robot wars.
