FYEE Conference Sessions
An existing introduction to engineering and design course at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering for first-year students was adapted to include guidance for first-year students to grow from early conceptual design to using the makerspace. A Rapid Assembly and Design (RAD) challenge embedded in NYU’s culture of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship was created that allows students to work on their own unique project. Lab exercises, instructional videos, and project working space were developed to support the open-ended projects that required the use of the makerspace. An end-of-semester survey was conducted to see if the participants in the RAD project benefited from the makerspace training and if the projects improved their engineering design abilities. A timeline of events and descriptions of the training are documented for others to reproduce.
