What can be learned from the Makers Movement to improve how engineering is taught?  Arizona State University engineering faculty members Micah Lande and Shawn Jordan address this question July 24, 2014 at a National Science Foundation (NSF) workshop “Engineering and the Maker Movement: Intersections and Opportunities” in Washington, D.C. Other speakers include White House OSTP Deputy Director Tom Kahil, Make Media founder Dale Dougherty and Makers from TechShop, NYSCI, America Makes and Albemarle County Schools.

Essential reading picks from ASU engineering faculty

ASU engineering faculty members offer recommendations about books to put on your summer reading list. Dr. Lande suggests Bill Stumpf’s The Ice Palace That Melted Away.

As engineers, we strive to make the world better. In this book, the designer of the popular Aeron office chair shares his personal manifesto for how mindful design can support civility, what that means and how the stuff we interact with everyday can help to make life more civil in both small and large ways. For me, this is a hallmark of people-centered innovation. It’s a quick read that I like to revisit periodically to restock the hope and optimism useful to drive innovation and change in our communities – change that is possible because we are engineers.

Design Thinking + Making Summer Session

How might we design for the future of hydration?  At a week-long summer session for high school students diving into engineering innovation, design thinking and making, a group of students created a mascot for drinking water.
