It’s April 9, and a seventh grader from the James P. Timilty Middle School in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood is standing on a rotating platform on the third floor of Northeastern’s Snell Engineering building holding onto a spinning bicycle wheel. “When you take physics later,” says Yoshua Rozen, E’18, “you’ll learn all about the conservation of angular momentum.”
Rozen is a first-year electrical and computer engineering student, and today is a learning experience for him too. For the final project of his engineering design class, he and his peers have been tasked with creating prototype museum exhibits to communicate complex engineering topics to younger students.
