I totally agree that the education system for engineers is not that practicle as it should be .In our universities students are just bombarded with notes , lectures, numericles and so on instead they should be given practicle and hands on experience on different projects. They should be asked to make different projects because while making these projects students face alot of difficulties and by trial and error method they study alot .Our engineers gets graduated from universities with very good GPAs but unfortunately they exactly dont know what they will be required to do in there professional lifes .

In one of our recent stories, the author of this article (Ray Almgren), talked about the difficulty of teaching science and engineering to students. "Hard is fine," he said. "But we also want them to find their classes interesting." In FIRST and Lego Mindstorms, mentioned here, we see the embodiment of that spirit.

I saw this on the ground at National Instruments Week in Austin in August. It was amazing to see what the kids were able to build in the robot competition. Great program.
