Using low-cost technology and relevant challenges to encourage and retain engineering students

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Using low-cost technology and relevant challenges to encourage and retain engineering students ' The engineering grand challenges facing the world today require innovation in engineering to solve tomorrow's greatest problems. Although we are surrounded by the products of engineering in our everyday lives, students often do not understand the importance of the engineering profession. Research strongly connects engineering to mathematics and science skills but does not associate engineering with problem solving, creativity, or the positive impacts on the world. It is disturbing to see how few young students understand the relevance and excitement of engineering. In the United States, there is a danger of having an insufficient supply of creative, young innovators for the future.
