Highlander Engineering III
Community • Engineering • Innovation • In-person EventRegister for Highlander Kick-OFF 2023!
Here at Highlander Engineering, we host monthly workshops and events, focusing on different engineering related topics such as hardware, software, robotics, and AI.
As a year-round initiative, we aim to support passionate high school students to create projects that deepen their interest in engineering. We also invite guest speakers and mentors to provide students the ability to explore and network with different companies.
With over 200 members and counting, we are excited to continue our journey as a community in the 2023-24 year!
Our mission is to light a spark in students of all backgrounds through which we hope to ignite a passion for technology and develop valuable skills and experience that will be beneficial in future education and employment environments. We hope to accomplish this by hosting workshops and fun events which will give our members valuable skills and experience that will help to shape the next generation of engineers.
AI x Biotech Summer Fest
The AI x Biotech Summer Fest was a two-day event where students experienced the latest developments in AI technology through a workshop by DeepAI, a leading startup AI company in San Francisco. In addition, students also learned how to build their own soil moisture sensor and explore electronics, sensors, and programming by competing in a hardware relay.
Highlander Engineering Pet Workshop!
We invited high school students to join us for an exciting web development workshop where they learned how to build a pet-themed Pomodoro timer! Participants also had the opportunity to interact with therapy dogs, who provided a calm and supportive presence throughout the entire workshop.
Highlander Engineering Spooky Workshop!
This thrilling workshop gave students the opportunity to use Arduino hardware and circuitry, such as motion sensors and voice modules, to create a jumpscare device!
