We have the opportunity to redesign the youth center at South Metro in San Diego.  I'm currently seeking 2-3 from the following disciplines:  Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer engineering undergraduates.  The project will allow you to gain experience in your field while also forfilling the needs of an under served community - double win!!  This project will be exciting because you'll be able to use your imagination and physically build and implement them.  Not too shabby, eh?
We're interested in Sophomore and Juniors (or seniors that will stick around for a while) in their fields.  You'll be given the task of redesigning a youth center ( imagine a really big room) that has multi purpose use - from allowing a teacher to hold sessions to acting as place for kids to study.  There are a group of kids (16-18) who act as the "advisory board" of this redesign and your job is to work WITH them to help with the project , especially since they are the demographic this youth center is targeting.
-Making an art table that is attached to a wall that can be pulled up and has a white board underneath it.
-Creating a mechanism that holds a large screen tv and creating a remote control that allows the user to face the tv in any direction.
This project has been pulled together rather rapidly and the due date to submit a resume is next week, Friday Jan. 21, 2011.  The following Monday, Jan. 24,  we'll be contacting students to conduct interviews the same week.  By Friday, Jan. 28, 2011 - we will have a team.
Good luck - this is going to be fun!
