RAD and Vex Kit Returns

Hello everyone! We apologize for the confusion about kit return deadlines. There was a bit of miscommunication on our end, which is why Open Lab was not open yesterday. In light of this confusion, we will be open tomorrow, 5/9, for any kits that still need to be returned. Please remember that if you do not return your kit by the end of day tomorrow, you will receive a grade of “I” for Incomplete for the course. If you have any questions please let us know at gecentral@eg.poly.edu!

VEX Kit Return Deadline

Hi All!

As a friendly reminder, all VEX groups must return their kits (with all components) to Open Lab by the end of this week. Open Lab will be open from 12-8 pm on Friday and 11 am-3 pm on Saturday. 3 pm on Saturday is the final deadline to return your kit. Not returning your kit will result in a grade of "incomplete" ("I"). Stop by Open Lab and ask a TA if you have any questions!

Have a great summer!

RAD Kit Return Deadline

RAD Showcase Results

Hello Everyone,
General Engineering is pleased to announce our respective winning RAD teams: Alarm Rug and Pi Glove. This year there was a tie and our winning teams will both be receiving the Gunter Georgi award for Outstanding General Engineering Design. Be sure to congratulate your peers when you see them! 

  • 1st Place: Alarm Rug - Christina Woo, Tingting Min, Stacey Lee, and Sima (Ngoc Phuong Thao) Ha
  • 1st Place: Pi Glove - Alejandro Olmedo, David Huang, and Teddy Polkosnik

We hope that even if you did not complete a RAD project or decided not to continue developing your prototype, you continue to stay curious and creative! We are so proud of everyone’s growth this semester and hope that you carry that entrepreneurial, maker spirit throughout your academic careers. Here are some NYU resources for your consideration:

Onwards and upwards!
Warm regards,
The EG Teaching Team

Kit Returns

Dear Students,

It is very important to return your project kit and empty/clean your locker by 5:00 pm EDT on May 6th, 2022. Failure to do so will result in a course grade of I, as in Incomplete. You may return your kit during any of the Open Lab sessions AFTER your Final Presentation session AND you have both commissioned and submitted your project.

If you were selected to present in the RAD showcase (Gunter Georgi Award nominee), please leave your prototype intact when returning your kit.

If you were nominated for the Nick Russo Award during the Final Presentation session, please leave your robot intact when returning your kit.

If you wish to keep your prototype for further development, you may apply using this Google Form: https://forms.gle/5cXVnK2mWwvPTTSJ8 . Applications are due Fri, Apr 29, 11:59pm. Decisions will be sent out by Mon, May 2. If approved, please return the rest of the kit.

Unless you were nominated for one of the awards above or approved to keep your prototype, please be sure to disassemble your project and neatly pack and arrange your kit for easy identification of parts by the receiving TA. Also be sure to clean out your locker and bring the lock from your locker when returning the kit.

Protolab 3D Printing Deadline

Hello,


This is the last week to make any 3D print submissions to the EG portal. Prints not done within the portal will not be considered for credit. Pending submissions will only get approved during Protolab hours which can be found on the Open Lab calendar. Below are all the deadlines for each section:

Printing Submission Deadlines:

  • Sections A & E: 4/19 6pm
  • Section B: 4/20 6pm
  • Sections C & F: 4/21 4pm
  • Sections D & G:  4/22 6pm

General reminder that all SLDP groups are required to have a printed logo for commissioning. For any print submission that is denied after the deadline, it will not be eligible for resubmission. If you require a new submission for a part after the deadline, please go to the MakerSpace instead. For any questions, email prototyping@eg.poly.edu.

Good luck!
