Summer Schools: Engineering in 3D (age 16–18)
Wed 26 July 2017, 10:30 – 16:30 BST
Imaging and visualising structures in 3D is crucial to understanding and reshaping the world in which we live and work. 3D imaging technology is a technology that has aroused a great interest in the past 10 years and made significant impact in our economy and society. In this session, Kamel Madi and Loic Courtois will transport you to the core of two of the most popular imaging techniques: a visible-light tomography-Lego system to mimic what today's CT scanners can achieve, and a stereo-vision system to mimic how our eyes sense depth. Students will complete hands-on experiments in groups to collect and reconstruct 3D images to understand this exciting topic.
Please Note: This workshop is strictly for 16–18 year-olds and will include a 45 minute unsupervised lunch break. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens, pencils and a USB drive if they wish to take their work home.
This workshop is based on an Ri Engineering Science Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
