The Creative Design Workshop is based on an existing learning model that currently operates on virtually all university campuses ñ the college newspaper. What better way to train future journalists than have them work in a real newspaper environment, honing their interview and writing skills, while at the same time providing an invaluable service to the university community. Similarly, the Creative Design Workshop initiated in Fall 2001 at Rutgers University, operates like an 'Engineering Company'. Its mission is the development of multimedia materials describing how mechanical engineering systems work and the rationale behind their design (training). The materials will be developed at the level of high school seniors and university freshmen with the aim of attracting more of these students into engineering careers (service to the community).
