My name is Jake De Necochea. I am the Engineering Marketing Intern at the Northern California Grow Manufacturing Initiative (GMI). My job is to help connect advanced manufacturers to educators in order to train a skilled workforce for the future of manufacturing. I have been asked to create a presentation for junior high and high school students about my esk8 board, the engineering practices I used, constraints, versions, problems, and the future of my board.
I wanted to get input from the community as to what should be included in this presentation. While this is more about inspiring kids about what you can do with engineering, I also want to bring awareness to the hobby.
I use this board as my primary mode of transportion, so I am constantly upgrading and innovating. It is used to solve a problem, which is why it is being used in the presentation.
So, in terms of education, what is important? At the presentation, should I allow kids to ride the board? What sort of visuals should I implement?
Thanks in advance!
