Charles,

Thanks! I'm a big advocate when it comes to students of all ages being engaged in learning through creative hands-on activities. The Maker movement is a good example of folks building cool devices to solve tough problems. Here's my contribution to the Maker Movement.

Well said, mrdon. At the risk of sounding coarse, I wish more engineering programs stressed more hands-on time, and less time with esoteric math.

I tell my students, everytime they touch a piece of test equipment, wire a circuit, or write code, they have obtained skills and the experience immediately. The best way to obtain this experience is through hands-on engagement with the device or object of interest.

@Pubudu: Learning from practical sessions is where you dig deep into some issue and do it on a routine basis. That I feel is the best way to learn things. That will make the user confident too. Remember that the mind plays a major role in anything.

@a.saji: Well good point but still a vehicle should have a good fuel consumption. You cannot segment it based on country levels.

@Pubudu: True as long as you have to pay a reasonable price for fuel. Consumption will not matter to much where the cost is low.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't try it, far911. The line was too long. A weak excuse, I know.

True far911, it won't be a much problem of fuel consumption for a person who can afford a truck. And also he will not like to have a poor performance couse to increase fuel efficiency.
