Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Using the engineering design process to solve a problem

Water contamination is a growing problem in our water sources. The main pollutants found at these sites are either organic material, inorganic material, macroscopic, microbial, or thermal. Some of these can be removed from water through physical processes with things that can be found in your home. This project would work to go through the engineering design process to design a water filtration system. Identifying the problem and potential solution.

Water Information Systems

There are so many things that can be learned through data systems, especially about our water resources. This project would involve processing large amounts of rainfall data and programing it in order to analyze the trends and make future predictions for compromised infrustrucre and agriculture.

Coding skills

VBA, C++, Python, R
