Native American Science & Engineering Program (NASEP) This was created by NASEP students & staff to share their experiences. June 1-June 5 th, 2009
NASEP ’09 is the…
DAY 1… 8 in the morning Everything was really quiet. Everyone was shy. We were all tired…but excited.
Getting to Know Each Other We introduced ourselves to each other (what our names are, where we go to school, what we want to do in life.) Think of it as “speed dating” in Movies
9:30 AM More professional staff showed up to help Discussed random things about ourselves…
9:31am We begin building our computers Learn about the components of the computer and how to handle them “Safety First”
Learning from the best Learning how to put our computer together from our instructor, Matt.
Building the computer Pretty standard not many problems with the build Just had to muscle in some pieces.
Lunch Lunch was a time to meet everyone. It was nothing like cafeteria food. “This Ain’t High School”
After Lunch Finished building the last of the computers Had some difficulty reading the “map” design that came with it. Figured it out in the end Finished the computer!!!
The Test… All the parts were in, we now had to power up our computers. Aaren told us to take cover for his. … So we did.
The Tests Success!! They all started!
Uploading Software We were given several different programs to install Very interesting part of the process Waited for the screen to say “finish”
Careful in handling the motherboard! Caution: not for children 6 and under, or those with unsteady or greasy hands… Assembly Required…
This is how it’s done …..skills.
Preparing us for college
Four U of A students spent the afternoon with us We met students who were earning their bachelors or masters degrees in civil engineering, biology, and visual communications College Student Panel
Campus Tour Old Main-first building of the university in 1885 Student Union-place to eat, relax, and seek resources to make college more enjoyable. Library-public to the community & is the only building on campus that is not red brick
College Prep Scholarships Gates Millennium Scholarship Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Majors of interest Engineering, graphic design, law, forensic science… What can we do now? Get good grades, learn time management, & achieve in extracurricular clubs & sports
Practice is only way to get better Don’t forget to ask questions. Also, multi-tasking is very important Be creative HAVE FUN!!!
Our first project Don’t forget to save your projects!
Personal 3-D designs Each student had to come up with their design. We used tools from the tutorial to create those designs.
Designing Everyone worked very hard on their projects. We also had time to do college and scholarship research.
Our Designs Our instructor, Corey made this design Ian designed a guitar pick Morningstar built a bracelet
More Designs Luz created a key chain Jalyssa also made a key chain Aaren designed modern artAshley made a small pencil holder
Rapid Prototype Printer transformed our ideas into actual 3-D projects! Now it’s time to print!
Dr. Julius Yellowhair Marlene Platero & Guest Speakers Different Native professionals visited to share their experiences and to offer a piece of wisdom. Emerson Bitsuie Engineers:
AZ Live- 3-D Virtual Reality Tour We learned the concepts & hardware needed make 3-D work. We experienced the 3-D ourselves We had so much fun.
What’s going to happen next?
WE AS A GROUP WILL WALK AWAY WITH A SENSE OF…
As a group and individually, we overcame obstacles and challenges. May this experience help us later on in our college and career paths. Accomplishment
Luz MorningStar Ashley Jalyssa Ian Aaren Abra Meredith Dylan Chris Source of Networking Between the students, staff, & guest speakers We have expanded our network!

A BRAND NEW COMPUTER!!!
