1 Computing Bioengine ering RoboticsPropulsionPotpourri

2 Topic 1: 10 This man originated the concept of a programmable computer. Charles Babbage

3 Topic 1: 20 A terabyte is how many bytes? 1TB = 1012 bytes

4 Topic 1: 30 In a traditional first program many people learn, this two word phrase is output on a display device. A “Hello World” program

5 Topic 1: 40 The name for this programming language literally means an increment on its predecessor, which reflects it’s evolutionary nature. C++

6 Topic 1: 50 This law, coined around 1970 by one of Intel’s founders, claims that the number of transistors on integrated circuits double every two years. Moore’s Law

7 Topic 2: 10 When this sheep was born in 1996, she became the first successfully cloned mammal. Dolly the Sheep

8 Topic 2: 20 This interdisciplinary field addresses biological problems using computational techniques, and makes the rapid organization as well as analysis of biological data possible. Bioinfomatics

9 Topic 2: 30 What method uses an electric field passed through a gel to separate DNA, RNA and proteins based on their size and charge? Gel electrophoresis

10 Topic 2: 40 This field uses the knowledge gained from reverse engineering evolved living systems to solve difficult design problems in artificial systems. Biomemetics

11 Topic 2: 50 Robert Jarvik invented this biomedical device that was first successfully used in Since then, variations have been used as a bridge for organ transplantation. Artificial Heart

12 Topic 3: 10 This Czech author and playwright coined the term “robot” in his play “RUR”. Karel Čapek

13 Topic 3: 20 What is the name of the first dexterous humanoid robot in space? Robonaut 2

14 Topic 3: 30 This is a measure of a robot’s independence. Autonomy

15 Topic 3: 40 This type of actuator moves in and out and is used in industrial robotics when very large forces are needed. Linear Actuator

16 Topic 3: 50 This is the science of machines that see. Computer Vision

17 Topic 4: 10 This propulsion system has no moving parts and operated at hypersonic velocities. Scramjet

18 Topic 4: 20 Who constructed the first practical four-stroke internal combustion engine? Nicolas Augustus Otto

19 Topic 4: 30 The fastest trains in the world use this type of propulsion. Mag-lev (or Magnetic Levitation)

20 Topic 4: 40 In 1957, this German engineer invented a rotary engine that has been used in a variety of vehicles such as automobiles, motorcycles, aircraft and jet skis. Felix Wankel

21 Topic 4: 50 In this type of rocket, the oxidier is kept separate from the fuel. Hybrid

22 Topic 5: 10 What two organizations joined to form AIAA in 1963? American Rocket Society (ARS) and the Institute of the Aeronautics Sciences (IAS)

23 Topic 5: 20 Name this number sequence: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, … Fibonacci sequence

24 Topic 5: 30 The concept of a simple machine originated with this Greek philosopher. Archimedes

25 Topic 5: 40 He was dubbed the “Wizard of Menlo Park” and held over 1,000 patents. Thomas Edison

26 Topic 5: 50 This man is best known for his geodesic dome design for which he received a patent for in R. Buckminster Fuller
