I agree, bobjengr. Hands-on experience translates to better engineers. Engineering schools are starting to realize that now, and more are putting hands-on design classes into the first year of their curriculums. National Instruments has told us about schools that use Lego Mindstorms in first-year engineering classes.

STUDENT RACE

Great post--very informative.  I certainly wish you good luck with the race.  I think endeavors of this type teach basic principals in a fashion that remain with the student and later on, the practicing engineer.  Most manufacturers will tell you that "hands-on" creates conditions in which learning "sticks" while facilitating the teaching process.   Again, good post and hope you guys win.

Kudos to Siemens for getting ionvolved. Applications like these are the best education a student can get.
