Hot Enough For You?

As a massive heat dome over the U.S. produces sweltering temperatures for many, our thoughts at ENGAGE Engineering naturally turn to opportunities for Everyday Examples in Engineering! Local weather is a great inspiration for familiar, relatable examples that help students learn foundational engineering concepts. When classes begin in August, for example, you can introduce students to the First Law of Thermodynamics with E3s incorporating air conditioning, sweating drink cans, and misted glasses. Other seasonal weather possibilities abound, so look at the concepts you’ll be teaching this year and plan your use of E3s NOW for the coming academic year. Evidence shows that your students will benefit and so will your course evaluations!
