On March 22nd this year, the Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral, destination the international space station and on board, buried in between 7500 lbs. of supplies was a very unique piece of equipment designed and created by the Cypress Woods and Cypress Springs High Schools in Cypress, Texas.

Under the instruction of industrial technology teacher Mike Bennett and as part of the HUNCH program, that involves students in fabricating real-world products for NASA as they apply their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills, the students designed a galley table for the space station to serve the astronauts. The HUNCH program — High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware has been running for 12 years already.

NASA contacted Mike in 2013. “They needed a focal point for everyone to meet together in the space station to share a table for a meal or a workspace,” Bennett said. “This was a great teaching opportunity and It makes it even more rewarding to know that we contributed a functional piece of hardware already being used.”

The students, participants in Mike Bennett’s advanced engineering design and engineering design classes, worked with the Johnson Space Center and Lockheed-Martin to create the design, then manufacture and build the prototypes and final version that was sent to space in March. The team used the Intelitek industrial manufacturing classroom tools in Mike’s lab including the spectraLIGHT CNC machine to create some of the parts needed for this project.

The fold-up table was designed with a latch system that allows it to be pulled up and out, doubling its length. One side is set up for a smooth surface with Velcro dots that can be attached to hold objects in zero-gravity. The other side features a seat track with clamps and holders ideal for a work circle.

Cypress Woods students in the precision metal class performed machining on the table parts using the Intelitek CNC machine.Intelitek Benchmill
spectraLIGHT is an earlier predecessor to Intelitek’s latest milling, turning and machining solutions for industrial education classes. Intelitek designs and delivers education programs and teaching hardware that is industrial grade and is integrated with comprehensive curriculum, programming software, and pre-production simulation tools. This enables educators like Mike Bennett to teach beginners and advanced students. The programs take students from the most basic level to the point where they can manufacture NASA parts.

 Intelitek’s mission is to teach career readiness skills – our programs are designed to teach students both in high school and at vocational or college level schools with the skills and knowledge real job providers are looking for. Intelitek Advanced Technology Programs teach relevant job skills using real-world tools focused on desirable industry specialties and in-demand trades.

The learning portfolio teaches methodologies and operations for areas like industrial robotics, manufacturing, materials handling, prototyping, hydraulics, mechatronics, electrical, CIM, process control and industrial maintenance.

Intelitek-Powered Robots Go Head-to-Head in Elementary School Robot Wars

A fleet of robots built and programmed by elementary students recently went head to head in the exciting Vex Robotics Tournament held at Richton Elementary School in Richton MS. Robots were tasked with moving objects around an obstacle course, earning points for each successful move.

Richton’s team was completely made up of 6th graders, making them by far the youngest team entering the competition. Teachers were also quick to point out to KFVS12 News that there were just as many girls competing as boys, showing that these exciting initiatives are encouraging more and more enterprising students to explore a career in manufacturing, robotics and computer science.

To get the most out of the competition, robots are delivered to the teams completely unassembled, and it’s up to the students to build them from scratch. It’s a challenging and fun activity with a competitive element that gets kids highly interested in STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Other useful real-world skills are fostered, such as project management, time management, working in groups and problem solving. The competition is a culmination of a lot of hard work and determination from these young engineers.

We’re proud that this initiative is running on Intelitek’s software, with students programming their robots using easyC, a programming language designed to be powerful enough to perform advanced operations but simple enough for young students to pick up.


Free First Tech Challenge Curriculum Coming Soon

With over 30 years of global experience creating educational solutions that incorporate hardware, software, curriculum and teacher tools, Intelitek has partnered with FIRST to develop an extensive twenty-hour long curriculum program to provide training for First Tech Challenge teams learning the hardware, and software behind the 2016 Android based FTC competition. This curriculum begins with a course introduction teaching students how to navigate the e-learning tool and to help teams choose which learning path to follow.

The curriculum will be rolled out in two phases, the first being an introduction to hardware modules and connectivity.  Details on the new Power Module, Legacy Module, and Android based devices, motor module components and connectivity of mechanical components, motors, servos, and sensors. Topics will be included for existing FTC teams describing the change over process from the Samantha and NXT modules to the new control system. This will guide students how to download, install, configure and run driver control apps from the Google Play store and describe the use of “op-modes” to ease the learning curve of learning how to program in a Java based environment.  

The second phase will contain training material for students developing their own Java based programs using MIT App Inventor as well as learning Java code with Android Studio. Students will be able to name and assign controllers, motors, and sensors, download and run sample code, modify that sample code to fit their needs, as well as write autonomous code for fully autonomous robots. 

You can view the FTC Curriculum Outline by Clicking Here

Phase 1 will be available starting June 5th, 2015.

Phase 2 will be available starting September 1st, 2015.
