Need help of establishing school engineering club

  1. Apr 27, 2014 #1
    I'm trying to make school engineering club, in high school, and I'm team leader.
    We want to teach mechanical engineering&electrical engineering.
    But I'm little confused because of setting curriculum of our club.
    What books&What courses can be useful?
    I'm thinking Digital Fundamentals/Electronics Fundamentals(floyd) and Make: Electronics, Arduino Cookbook will be helpful.
    Any help that I recieve will be greatly appreciated.
    (Sorry for my low english level, I'm korean...)

    Welcome to the PF. I think using the MAKE Magazine DIY projects as the initial basis for your club is a great idea. It gives folks immediate tangible results, instead of just being another class to sit through.

    When I was in high school, we had a digital electronics club and we used simple TTL components to make ripple counters, clocks, and other neat little electronic widgets like that. You could also go more advanced and make a small balancing inverted pendulum (like a mini Segway), but that would a bit of help from a teacher to get the mechanics and controls down.
