At the Chicago show, Nissan rolled out the Frontier Diesel Runner pickup, a “project truck” that will help the company’s executives gauge market reaction to a Nissan mid-size pickup with a diesel engine. Its 2.8-liter, four-cylinder Cummins diesel produces about 200 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque, while boosting fuel economy by 35 percent over a V-6-powered, two-wheel drive version of the Frontier.

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.
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.
