Missing Battery #70

Hello Everyone!


If anyone has seen or is in possession of battery #70, please bring it to RH 515A as soon as possible! Thank you and good luck with the rest of the semester!

Returning your EV3 Kits

Hello everyone! 

You are required to return your EV3 Kits before the end of Open Lab at 8:30 PM this Friday (12/9). If you are missing a major item of your kit, you are required to purchase a replacement and to use that to return your kit. 

Additionally, if you are nominated for the Nick Russo Award please do not disassemble your kit and notify the TA when you are returning your kit. If you fail to return your kit, there will be serious repercussions.

If you have any questions, please let us know at or email your Recitation TA and professor.  

Final Presentations!

Hello everyone! 

Just a quick reminder that you need to bring in a print out of your final presentations just like you would for every lab! Also, please remember that you should be dressing in business attire. If you're not sure what that is, wear what you would to an interview. 

If you have any questions, please contact your recitation TA, professor, or email us at Best of luck! 

EG 1003 Course Survey

Hello everyone! 

As the semester comes to an end, we ask that every student fill out our EG Course Survey. This survey is essential to improving the course to ensure that EG 1003 provides an excellent experience to all students. You will be filling out this survey in 15 minutes during your next recitation. 

This survey is completely anonymous and no information other than your responses to our questions will be collected. Please be as brutually honest as possible. If you wish to provide names (either good or bad), feel free to do so. This course will only improve with your help! Thank you!

Video Instruction Survey

Hello everyone!

The General Engineering department is conducting an anonymous, optional survey about video instruction. In order to participate in the survey, you must be 18 years of age or older and we ask that you complete the survey with the online link provided: Your participation is voluntary and you may skip any questions that you do not want to answer. We seek to use this data to improve the course and also as the basis of a professional presentation and publication about video instruction in first-year engineering courses, so we value your honest answers. This survey is optional. You may refuse to participate in the survey or any part of it without any penalty. We do not think anyone will be embarrassed or harmed in any way by the information they submit on this survey. Nevertheless, we will not retain personal information as part of this research, and we will not use your name in any publication. Furthermore, your recitation professors and the course director will not know which responses come from you. In addition, they will not see the individual results of these surveys until the semester is over and grades have been submitted. We are taking these steps so that you feel confident in submitting candid responses. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Prof. Jack Bringardner (

3D CAD Team Logos and Course Modifications

Hello everyone! 

The due date for the 3D CAD models of your team logos and any course modifications has been moved back. Now any team logos or course modifications that you want to be printed by EG 1003 TAs is due at the same time as your Lab 7 presentation. If your design is denied, you will be allowed to resubmit after the deadline. 

If you need any help with CAD or other CAD software, we will have TAs in the EG Prototyping Lab in RH223 (in the front two rooms) who have experience with CAD software and who will be working with our printers. You will have full access to our seven 3D printers in those rooms under the guidance of our TAs. The hours for the Prototyping Lab are 12pm - 6pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The hours on Wednesday are from 2pm - 6pm. 

Also, if you print a robot or course modification on your own in the MakerSpace anytime before commissioning you will still be eligible for extra credit. All you will have to do is submit your design on the website and there will be a "Printed by team" option (this will be added to website in the coming week). This can be done after the normal deadline for submitting prints and will count as the same extra credit. 

If you have any questions, please email us at Best of luck!
