Indeed, Cadman-LT, hands-on is the only way to learn. As a journalist now 16 years into my career, I realize I learned more on the job than I ever did in school. I think this is also true in life. So the more student engineers can get their hands dirty in the field so to speak, the better prepared they will be for their careers.

Well, not only that but, just any project where the students get involved. Not reading a book. It's exciting to them and they WANT to learn. Books with projects....there you go. Not so boring.

Elizabeth, it's any project really. It's hands on stuff. Best way to learn IMO. We didn't really have such things back when I was in school. Best way to learn, hands-on! The real world is different than a book.

Will do, Mydesign. I'm working on a couple of stories this week about new battery designs in fact.

"You're probably right, Mydesign, and that's the general consensus in the field, too, I think."

Elizabeth, any updates about recent developments in this area. Or keep posting when you have.

"Then again, battery storage also has been what's hindered EVs and hybrids, and that problem is taking a substantial amount of time to solve as well."

Elizabeth, all these factors are true and I think it may take years to realize the commercial production of such vehiciles.

Scientific and engineering history is evident everywhere you look in our modern world, and there are a plethora of institutions, museums, facilities and other places that celebrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) ideas and innovations.
If done properly, the president’s plan could benefit nearly everyone. Of course, given the realities of Washington politics, it’s hard to tell whether anything -- or, at least, anything good -- will ever come of this proposal.
While many would balk at the idea of robots looking after children not many could argue against robots educating the younger generation to code. After all, the world they are growing up in depends on it, and it’s still not -- for the most part -- being taught or mandated in schools. There’s even an argument to be made that computer literacy is becoming as important in today’s world as traditional literacy.
As part of its commitment to STEAM education, Autodesk has expanded its offering to provide design, engineering, and entertainment software free to students, teachers, and academic institutions across the world
As part of Computer Science Education Week, Code.org is asking students of all ages to try their hand at computer programming for one hour. Even President Obama gave it a shot.
