Workshop 2016 has ended


The NJSBA Workshop 2016 SCHED and mobile app feature the same programming, speaker, and exhibitor information, however, schedules created on SCHED cannot be integrated to the mobile app.

To stay connected throughout Workshop 2016 and have your schedule on your smart device, please download the NJSBA Workshop mobile app available through the Apple App store or Google Play store by searching NJSBA Workshop 2016.

The Workshop app offers an opportunity to actively engage in Workshop throughout the entire event by networking with other attendees, vendors and speakers; posting pictures to the newsfeed, viewing sessions, receiving announcements, getting the most up-to-date event information, earning points and in-app badges and more!

Make sure you select “yes” to receive notifications from Workshop 2016, including minute-to-minute updates, session changes and cancellations as soon as they happen. 

REMINDER: Attendance at training sessions, unless pre-registration is required, is first-come basis. Creating an agenda via SCHED or the mobile app does not guarantee a place in the session.

Using the eleven step scientific method for data collection and prototype design, the engineering students of the Egg Harbor Township High School request permission & approval from NJSA to design and build a touch-pad activated control circuit that operates doors and windows in the homes of United States Veterans, classified as physically challenged from active tours of duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. Many a men (and women)----following orders into the path of “harm’s way”---- have been left with significant physical challenges to what was once “mobility” granted to serve.

The control circuit would have a two (2)-stage operation: pulse-activated touch pad producing a signal output and a power circuit controlling an actuator (such as a dc motor, pneumatic circuit, hydraulic circuit, servo, or switching relay). Fingers placed on a touch pad activates the ring counter to circulate preset bits producing a digital pulse train that would be amplified to a power level needed to latch an electronic relay raising a window, opening a doorway, or turning on an alarm. A successful circuit design would bring ability to life.

To develop a touch pad circuit model that raises and lowers a window. The expected outcome should correspond to STEM standards in accordance with N.J.S.A.,Title 18A.
