Greetings,
I enjoyed meeting so many engineering educators doing lots of interesting activities all over the country. As many of us prepare for the Spring Semester, I wanted to offer two free resources from Carnegie Mellon and an upcoming design competition.
One is the "Public Policy Analysis for Engineers" module that can be incorporated into any engineering class -- say an "intro class" or an engineering topic where policy plays a major role such as energy, environment, security, robotics, etc. See: http://oli.cmu.edu/courses/free-open/policy101/.
Second is "Energy Bite" -- a 1.5 minute podcast available on ITunes and on this website with supporting documents for classroom activities -- http://energybite.org/-- For example, episode 131 is "Can we prevent electrical blackouts?."
If you are based in PA, MD, OH, or WV, your students are eligible to participate in the Allegheny Clean Tech University Prize Competition sponsored by DOE/EERE. More information at http://cleantechprize.org.
If questions on any of the above, email me at dstine@andrew.cmu.edu.
