Sponsored Project: DC Mini MotorUpcoming
Design a mini DC motor from scratch!
Begins: September 1, 2020
Project Summary: If you've ever made a mini-motor in physics class from a magnet, a battery, and a few wires, you'll know that it's not the greatest. In this project, we will be making our own version of a hand-wound motor - but one that is self-starting and capable of generating a meaningful, useable amount of power! The team will be designing a brushed DC motor from the ground up with 3D-printed and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) parts.

- Create an affordable, model of a motor that students can assemble by hand in a classroom teaching setting and during outreach initiatives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area
- Teach student team members about concepts in electrical engineering and physics
- Learn about 3D modeling and product development
- Learn about project management methodologies (Agile, Lean, Scrum, and Waterfall) and utilize TSoG’s project Gantt chart system
- Contribute valuable teaching models that will introduce students (as early as Kindergarten) to electrical engineering and basic physics
