1 ATE Due-0903336 "Blues had a baby, and named it Rock and Roll“ Muddy Waters

2 ATE Due-0903336 "Blues had a baby, and named it Rock and Roll“ Muddy Waters Tom Singer, Professor Mechanical Engineering Technology Steve Wendel, Director National Center of Manufacturing Education

3 TechnologyEngineeringMathScience r = 2 1/12 ~ 1.059 Ln = L0 (1 - 1/rn)

4  Science ◦ Physics (wave motion, magnetics, frequencies) ◦ Chemistry (finishes)  Technology ◦ CNC, Laser, Electronics, Woodworking, Tool usage (power and hand)  Engineering ◦ Design, analysis (CG), material properties, Ergonomics, IE  Math ◦ Geometry, algebra, logarithms, calculus “It’s a long way to the top if you want to Rock and Roll” – AC/DC

5  Easy to relate ◦ Multiple levels of integration (from full blown manufacturing centers to an after school club)  It is Gender neutral ◦ We are even experimenting with nail polish painting!  Students already have interest (easily recognizable)  High success rate for completed guitars 99% (1% just stopped showing up)  Relatively low cost to get started (under $1500 in tools / equipment for a lab)

6  It has many intangibles : ◦ A confidence builder, tactile learning tasks, expands reach of program into music, arts. ◦ Recruiting for the class begins with the guitar lessons instructors on campus and the music department.  Creates a lot of buzz on campus  Campus newspaper, administrators, students all take notice since it is a unique concept applied learning.  Local TV, Newspaper have highlighted the class  Local music shops and Luthier's in your area are willing to assist  It expands the local music community.  There is a network of Schools (Universities, community Colleges, and high Schools) already doing guitar manufacturing and assembly around the US.  We have developed the systems and materials needed for your integration.

7  Physics and math dept’s use guitars and string tension gauges in classes  2 types of class options in MET ◦ No-prerequisite class in exploring manufacturing and guitar building (students customize a pre-made guitar) over 50% are non-ET majors ◦ Mini capstone -Our MET program has a end of year one capstone in design and fabrication

8  In the guitar manufacturing class ◦ No-Prerequisites..Open to all students on campus ◦ Used as a recruiting tool, expose students to a variety of basics skill sets  Safety and tool operation (hand and machines)  Use CAD to design headstock shapes for cutouts  Experience CNC & Laser engraving operations  Learn to read schematic diagrams and solder  Learn a bit of chemistry (finishes)  Get exposure to Physics and Math applications

9  In the end of year one MET capstone class – ◦ Students work on multifunctional teams (in the last 2 years we had graphic art students and Mechanical Engineering Technology students on teams) ◦ They design, market test and analyze designs before production ◦ Apply many of the competencies learned in the first year of classes " Bought a beat up six string in a second hand store. Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure, that one guitar felt good in his hands. – Foreigner, Juke Box Hero

10  Attend a training workshop on STEM applied guitar fabrication (2011 dates) ◦ January 8-13 Las Vegas, NV (Southwest Technical) ◦ June 20-25 College of the Redwoods, Eureka, CA ◦ June 27- July 1 San Diego, CA ◦ July 11-15 Sinclair Community College, Dayton, OH ◦ July 11-15 Butler County Community College, Butler, PA ◦ Tentative Aug 1-Purdue University West Lafayette, IN Team partner applications (one Technology faculty one Math or Science Faculty @www.guitarbuilding.orgwww.guitarbuilding.org Registration is available Now!

11  Low level: use a guitar as a learning tool in the classroom (reverse engineer, designs, applied Math and Physics) Curriculum & models are available on guitarbuilding.org  Medium level: Test a sample build of a small quantity of guitars by using a school club or after school project. Sell the guitars at a profit to help purchase tools etc.  High level: Become one of our supply chain partners in manufacturing and applied learning of the guitar tools. Needs a fairly large lab space that can get dusty.

12  Low level: use a guitar as a learning tool in the classroom (reverse engineer, designs, applied Math and Physics) Curriculum & models are available on guitarbuilding.org  Medium level: Test a sample build of a small quantity of guitars by using a school club or after school project. Sell the guitars at a profit to help purchase tools etc. Build a guitar as part of a club or as team exercise in a class  Minimal tool cost  Sanding station, basic hand tools, basic electric drill and bits, soldering tools, wet dry vac

13  High level: Become one of our supply chain partners in manufacturing and applied learning of the guitar tools. Needs a fairly large lab space that can get dusty and have storage.

17 Curriculum and Resources  Classroom Tools ◦ Guitar Primer ◦ Guitar Design & Mfg. ◦ Integrated Learning ◦ Skills Set Evaluation ◦ Tools and Equipment  Guitar Fabrication ◦ Assembling a Guitar ◦ Video Series ◦ Wiring Schematics

18

19 Guitar kits run $155 single PU -- $165 double pickup

20 ATE Due-0903336 For more information, curriculum and videos Guitarbuilding.org He never ever learned to read or write so well, but he could play his guitar like he was ringing a bell. - Chuck Berry, Johnny B. Goode

21  Look for integration opportunities in your curriculum ◦ Check out our Guitar design and Manufacture workbook for STEM activities ready for classroom use  You choose the level of applied learning ◦ Use the curriculum as a stand alone item in the classroom ◦ Integrate through Building guitars ◦ Become a supply chain partner  We sell complete or hardware only kits of the guitars to schools.  if you do not have Mfg capabilities but still want to get involved! ◦ $165 for the guitar kit ◦ $125 for the hardware only

22  Attend a training workshop on STEM applied guitar fabrication ◦ June 20-25 College of the Redwoods, Eureka, CA ◦ June 27- July 1 San Diego, CA ◦ July 11-15 Sinclair Community College, Dayton, OH ◦ July 11-15 Butler County Community College, Butler,PA ◦ Tentative Aug 1-Purdue University West Lafayette, IN Team partner applications (one Technology faculty one Math or Science Faculty @www.guitarbuilding.orgwww.guitarbuilding.org Registration is available Now!

23  Laptop soundcard based oscilloscope ◦ http://www.zeitnitz.de/Christian/scope_en http://www.zeitnitz.de/Christian/scope_en ◦ Used to intonate a guitar  Making sure the string length is exactly ½ the distance between the nut and the bridge … the overall distance is termed Scale Length  AutoDesk products (free for students and faculty use ) not for labs. ◦ http://students.autodesk.com
