Our SEAMS Workshop extends the Principles course to include a hack-a-thon during the second week. The topic focus and schedule for the first week remains largely the same, though we integrate development of a work plan for the hack-a-thon.
During the hack-a-thon week, the schedule is more flexible. Participants meet with faculty on a regularly scheduled basis to check-in on how their plan is progressing, but they set that plan. The workshop wraps with participants demonstrating changes to their project’s engineering.
