Critical Tinkers (CT)

Academic - Engineering

Description

Critical Tinkers is a team of undergraduate students in electrical and computer engineering who use and develop our critical thinking skills to create exciting and challenging projects. The goals of our group are to learn to think critically, develop hands on demos, projects, and activities. We take part in high school visitations and perform demonstrations ourselves and help faculty members in the department with their own presentations and demos. We want to be a source of enthusiasm and excitement in the department, and become life-long learners. We believe learning should be interesting, challenging, creative, and engaging.
