A look at engineering education today? with an eye to tomorrow Engineering education is in flux. While it is increasingly important that engineers be innovative, entrepreneurial, collaborative, and able to work globally, there are virtually no programs that prepare students to meet these new challenges. Shaping Our World: Engineering Education for the 21st Century seeks to fill this void, exploring revolutionary approaches to the current engineering curriculum that will bring it fully up to date and prepare the next generation of would-be engineers for real and lasting professional success. Comprised of fourteen chapters written by respected experts on engineering education, the book is divided into three parts that address the need for change in the way engineering is taught; specific innovations that have been tested, why they matter, and how they can be more broadly instituted; and the implications for further changes. Designed to aid engineering departments in their transition towards new modes of learning and leadership in engineering education, the book describes how to put into practice educational programs that are aligned with upcoming changes, such as those proposed in the NAE's Engineer of 2020 reports. Addressing the need to change engineering education to meet the demands of the 21st century head on, Shaping Our World condenses current discussions, research, and trials regarding new methods into specific, actionable calls for change.

From the creative mind of author, robotics instructor, and frequent NXT Step Blog contributor Laurens Valk, The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Adventure Book is packed with building and programming instructions for eight innovative robots. The Adventure Book follows two astronauts through rigorous ground training that in the basics of programming NXT robots. As the book progresses, the astronauts (and you) learn how to build and program increasingly sophisticated robots. When the astronauts depart for their mission, you will learn essential programming skills, including how to make robots move and how to use sensors. With solid programming instruction and crystal clear, full color building instructions, you will create robots like Strider, the six-legged walking creature, CCC, a vertically moving vehicle, and BS-61, a machine that sorts by color and size. The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Adventure Book gives you the knowledge to not only build these models, but to develop your own out-of-this-world creations.
