Pressure for Fun: A Course Module for Increasing Chemical Engineering Students' Excitement and Interest in Mechanical Parts
Scarbrough, Will J.; Case, Jennifer M.
Chemical Engineering Education, v40 n4 Fall 2006
A new module in a first year mechanical drawing course was designed with the primary goal of exciting chemical engineering students about mechanical things. Other goals included increasing student ability and confidence to explain how things work. A variety of high intensity, hands-on, facilitated group activities using pumps and valves were planned and executed and are described in detail in this article. Results from a before-and-after Likert-type survey suggest that the course module succeeded in its objectives.
