Participants will engage in a hands-on project activity that mirrors the student experience on the first day of an integrated history-materials science course. Through the lens of an undergraduate student in the integrated course block, participants will gain first-hand knowledge of the ways in which the authors connect learning objectives across traditionally separated disciplines, and how they implement these learning objectives in a project-based, self-directed manner. Following the hands-on activity, the workshop facilitators will provide an overview of the educational theory ... (continued)

Mechanix is a newly developed and freely available tutoring software for teaching truss analysis, free body diagrams, and open-ended truss problems. It is designed to improve understanding through active learning and immediate feedback. Mechanix provides a more efficient means to teach engineers basic mechanics concepts thus allowing their study time to be more productive and additional material to be added to the curriculum. It allows users to truss draw diagrams as they would naturally on paper. It also incorporates automate assessment and summary of the mistakes the class is making.

Tablet PCs use their inherent ability to accept electronic ink (e-ink) input to enable users to interact with the device in a more natural way. This is especially important in learning environments where the user needs to focus on subject material rather than on the device used to record or store the subject information. Using tablet PCs, instructors are able to increase their effectiveness by making more dynamic presentations and by including active exercises into their classroom environments. Tablet PCs also facilitate better and more natural note-taking by students and easier after-class revie ... (continued)

Engineering has recently become a central concern for K-12 education and K-12 education research. Currently, 17 states include engineering as part of their state curriculum standards. Meanwhile, universities and colleges continue to demonstrate concern for attracting students to engineering, and so, numerous outreach programs for P-12 students are designed, implemented, and evaluated. As more and more teachers integrate engineering into their classrooms, universities and other organizations continue to offer and evaluate outreach programs, and researchers investigate how engineering is learned in pr ...
