On-Campus Event for Higher Achievement Scholars

Middle school students from Homewood and the Hill District participating in the Higher Achievement Scholars program visited CMU to interact with engineering students from the Tau Beta Pi (TBP) honor society and the Carnegie Mellon Racing (CMR) team. TBP students involved school kids in tower building activities while explaining principles of structural engineering.
Prof. Singh and CMR students host Higher Achievement Scholars in the workshop and shared their excitement about designing and building a racecar as part of academic experience at CMU.
Scitech Festival, Carnegie Science Center

Every year, Carnegie Mellon Racing (CMR) Team, lead by Prof. Singh, transport their Formula SAE race car to the Carnegie Science Center to engage school students in discussion about science and engineering. CMR students Phil Aufdencamp and Bryan Tang are excited to show car to children.
CMR students Sascha Demetris and Daniel Haddox explaining engineering and design aspects of the car to children.
Prof. Singh, and CMR students Sascha and Dan explaining design and function of individual car components to school students.
Students of CMU's Tau Beta Pi (TBP) engineering honor society set up science demonstrations at the Scitech Festival with the help of Gelfand Center. Students explaining polymer chemistry and the use of polymers in our everyday life to school kids.
"What is Research": Seminar to School Teachers

Members of Carnegie Mellon Racing (CMR) team gave a seminar to middle and high school educators who were attending an outreach program organized by Gelfand Center. Prof. Singh and undergraduate students Sascha Demetris and Kyle Mueller explained CMU's race car activities to the teachers. Students also discussed how they got interested in engineering while attending high school.
Prof. Singh giving seminar to school teachers on his research. In this seminar, teachers learn about research in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and its applications to the fields of energy and the environment.
Science Day at University Park Elementary, Monroeville

Prof. Singh and students from Tau Beta Pi and Pi Tau Sigma honor societies travelled to University Park Elementary School in Monroeville to participate in Science Day.
Students interacting with school children to explain water absorbing capabilities of certain polymers.
Students prepared simple experiments to demonstrate the principles of physics to elementary school kids. CMU students Andre, Steve and others are explaining the concepts of friction and gravity experienced by moving objects such as balls rolling over a ramp.
