The "Kicker Project" was designed to allow new studnnts, as well as students from other disciplines to get a good hold on what mechanical does. It is a simple mechanism where a free-rotating rod with a leg is manually pulled back, and released to kick a ball. This exercise demonstrates many mechanical skill such as:

  • Operating a band saw
  • Operating a belt sander
  • Operating a Drill Press
  • Reading a dimensioned drawing
  • Identifying and using fasteners
  • Utilizing basic mechanical parts (bearings)
