Engineering and Technology Laboratory Experiments

James A. Jacobs School of Science & Technology Norfolk State University


NEW: Update 2001 builds on 15 years of annual workshops aimed at improving engineering, science, and technology. This Year’s workshop was a part of the National Institute of Standards & Technology’s (NIST) 100th anniversary celebration. This session provides demonstrations of a sample of experiments presented at the workshop. The NEW:Update series has provided over 2560 materials educators with the latest developments in material science and technology while offering strategies for improving teaching. These NEW:Update participants have seen about 500 experiments and demonstrations presented live or on videotape and have been provided with supplemental notes for replicating the experiments. Peer review and publication of the experiments and demonstrations have provided the materials education community with current, valuable aids for teaching and research. More than 400 of those experiments are available on EMSET2 CD-ROM.


This Materials Division session provides a small sampling of experiments for engineering and technology taken from 37 that were presented to the 2001 National Educators’ Workshop (NEW:Update 2001). National Institute of Standards and Technology invited us to conduct the 16 th annual NEW:Update in celebration of NIST’s Centennial. Unfortunately, security restrictions resulting from the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack required moving NEW:Update 2001 to the University of Maryland. As a result of the excellent coordination of Professor Isabel Lloyd and the Chemical and Materials Engineering Department at Maryland along with researchers from NIST coordinated by Said Jahanmir, NEW:Update 2001 proved to be another successful workshop.

NEW:Updates - The National Educators' Workshop (NEW:Update) series of workshops has been in existence since 1986. NEW:Updates focus on strengthening materials education through technical updates and publication of laboratory experiments and demonstrations for materials science, engineering and technology, involving new and traditional content in the field. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Department of Energy (DOE), NIST, and Norfolk State University (NSU), have provided the major funding for these workshops. Joining in support are the American Society for Engineering Education, ASM International, American Society for Testing & Materials, Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory, Boeing Airplane Company,
