Morris Teaches Students to Fly with Autodesk's Eagle


One week after Matthew Boss's successful teaching session on electrical engineering, Program Manager Connor Morris took the lab's new members through an overview of Autodesk's Eagle program. Eagle allows its user to design and produce circuit boards, which is extremely useful in the development of a CubeSat. Morris led the students through the design of a simple circuit board, with each student following along on their own laptops through the process. After finishing their boards, Morris then discussed examples of Eagle's use in the lab and its importance in the design of well-made spacecraft.
