Memphis – Christian Brothers University (CBU) will host an engineering workshop for high school students that will teach them to build a simple electric motor. This workshop will be held Monday, September 22 from 3:30 to 5:45 p.m. in the Nolan Engineering Center, Room 241. Students will receive an understanding of how appliances help transport goods, provide cooling and open doors.

The School of Engineering Workshop Program is a year-round series of opportunities to acquaint students with elements and techniques of engineering. This yearÕs first workshop will expose students to the principles associated with the design and construction of electric motors. They will also learn several interesting aspects of magnets and electricity. Students will end the event by designing and building their own simple motor.

This workshop is free and open to all students in grades 9-12. Seating is limited, so advance registration is required. Register now online at: http://www.cbu.edu/engineering/workshop/motors. For more information, contact engineering@cbu.edu or (901) 321-3405. ###
