Student led development of engineering estimate problems based on YouTube videosAbstractYouTube Fridays devotes a small fraction of class time to student-selected videos related to thecourse topic. The students then write and solve a homework-like problem based on the events inthe video. Three recent pilots involving over 300 students have developed a database of videosand questions that reinforce important course concepts like energy balances and phase behavior.A set of example problems and videos will be presented from a sophomore level engineeringthermodynamics course and a sophomore level material and energy balances course. Studentevaluations found a vast majority (79%) of the students felt better at relating real worldphenomena to thermodynamics from participating in YouTube Fridays. Overall, YouTubeFridays is a student led activity that provides practice of problem solving on open-ended, courserelated questions.
