Teachers Thomas Johnson (Newark High School), Lisa Kowalski (Padua Academy) and Chuck Halfen (Newark High School) assist with a demonstration led by workshop co-host Jon Manon.
Teachers and students from six Delaware high schools recently
attended a professional development workshop led by University of
Delaware faculty members, who used advanced manufacturing via 4-D
printing to conduct self-folding and self-assembling activities.
The June 23 workshop, held in the UD MakerGym, introduced
participants to mathematical and engineering concepts through five
activities, including using origami to investigate design principles of
self-folding. It was co-hosted by John Jungck, professor of biological
sciences and of mathematical sciences, and Jon Manon, assistant
professor of mathematical sciences and associate director of UD’s
Professional Development Center for Educators.
Keynote presentations were given by Chrystalla Mouza, director of the
School of Education, who discussed her maker space, and Martha Hall,
director of innovation in the College of Health Sciences, who spoke
about empathic design of assistive technologies. UD students Ethan
Bishop, a senior in the College of Engineering, and Metehan Cebeci, a
senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, gave a tour of the MakerGym,
a space where students, faculty and staff can develop creative
Jungck led the teachers in an exercise where they learned about 4-D
printing via self-assembly by playing with self-assembling dodecahedra,
icosahedra and decahedra produced by his senior UD engineering students
and five students from Brandywine High School.
Jungck was the principal investigator for a grant from the Sigma Xi
national scientific honor society that funded the workshop, titled
“Learning with All Your Senses.” Participating were teachers from
Brandywine, Concord, Middletown and Newark high schools, Charter School
of Wilmington and Padua Academy.
