Have you ever wanted to build something cool like a robotic arm, but never known how? Are you the kid who would love to build stuff in his/her spare time, but never had a community to rely on to help you? Look no further than Ramaz’s Engineering Club. No matter whether you want to learn about what a transistor is, want help in designing or documenting your project in CAD, or want to work on a project with your peers, the club can help you.
We can work with RFID, robots, LEDs, servos, DC motors, or any other relatively small projects/components. Engineering is becoming one of the largest fields in the 21st century. There are new groundbreaking inventions being created daily by innovators and visionaries. Maybe you have what it takes to build the next big thing—so come hone your skills here. No prior engineering experience is necessary.

Exciting developments are happening all the time in physics, and there is often not enough time to discuss them in physics class. This club offers the opportunity to examine such contemporary developments, as well as other topics in physics that may not be covered in class. From quantum mechanics to string theory, from condensed matter to plasmas, we will use newspaper and magazine articles, as well as original research articles to study some of these topics. Students may, in addition, propose other areas of interest to them.
