Engineer school

Apprentice engineers have a practical approach of the experiment. The INSA- in Lyon offers a training for students aiming at working in the filed of art. Some like to work with the Planeterrella. In that case, we write together a specification document on a problem that I would like to solve. The students come manipulate the Planeterrella, make measurements, propose a solution. After some iteration, they work on the plans and the cost. At the end, they must write a professional report and provide the numerical files that could be used in a factory for a true realization.
I only give one example below: I asked to Thibault Marion and Johany Martinez how to decrease the noise of the vacuum pump.
