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

2 ATE Due "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 ~ 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 College of the Redwoods, Eureka, CA ◦ June 27- July 1 San Diego, CA ◦ July Sinclair Community College, Dayton, OH ◦ July Butler County Community College, Butler, PA ◦ Tentative Aug 1-Purdue University West Lafayette, IN Team partner applications (one Technology faculty one Math or Science 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.

15 COLLABORATION & FABRICATION  Requirements & Planning  Concept Engineering  Product Engineering  Manufacturing Engineering  Product Test & Quality  Manufacturing Production  Sales & Distribution  Maintenance & Repair  Disposal & Recycling Cautiously Engaged Full Throttle Getting Started

16

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 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 College of the Redwoods, Eureka, CA ◦ June 27- July 1 San Diego, CA ◦ July Sinclair Community College, Dayton, OH ◦ July Butler County Community College, Butler,PA ◦ Tentative Aug 1-Purdue University West Lafayette, IN Team partner applications (one Technology faculty one Math or Science Registration is available Now!

23  Laptop soundcard based oscilloscope ◦ ◦ 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. ◦
