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.

Latest Analysis
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
