You want to get kids interested in engineering (especially mechanical engineering, but let's keep it broad). What sorts of interesting and "hip" projects might you think about to capture the attention of kids who aren't already into engineering. I'm thinking things like designing theme parks or mapping the movement of dancers in order to create models or something linking into popular TV shows like American Idol or some such.

EDIT: The age group I'm specifically looking at is late HS into college, but don't let that limit your tossing out ideas!
