Think like an engineer: Design a scooter
Scooters are great for kids—they provide a way to get around, they’re environmentally friendly, and they keep you physically active! However, designing a product for children can be tricky. Developing a product targeted to a youth market involves a process that begins with developing a keen understanding of the functional and safety needs and aesthetic preferences for this important demographic group.
Get creative with design in class
In this project, you will engage in the process of developing a scooter that consists of multiple assembled parts developed using Autodesk® Inventor® software. This project offers a solid introduction to many of the key features of Inventor and how the software can be used to generate virtual and physical prototypes.
