LabVIEW and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® as an Intro to Engineering

Hear how Tufts University School of Engineering staff reworked its first-year Introduction to Engineering courses so students can immediately engage in hands-on, project-based learning; negotiate group work; experience leadership training; and explore various engineering disciplines. For example, the new Simple Robotics course explores ideas from mechanical to structural and from electronics to computer science, all using LabVIEW and the LEGO MINDSTORMS robotic toolset. At this session, examine student coursework, the role of creativity in engineering education, and generating diverse, innovative student solutions for assignments
