Mechatronics is a progressive, vital sector of the advanced manufacturing industry where highly skilled professionals incorporate the principles of mechanics, electronics and computers to create more efficient and reliable systems, and innovative products. It is essentially a design process that integrates mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering and control engineering.

Researchers from Empa and ETH Zurich have succeeded in producing a prototype of a vibration-damping material that could change the world of mechanics forever. The material of the future is not only able to damp vibrations completely; it can also specifically conduct certain frequencies further...
Students are becoming more reliant on online and mobile content, devices, teaching methods, applications, services and other resources. As rich online media, methods and tools begin to dominate the classroom, it’s more important than ever for district networks to be fast, secure, resilient and robust. Forward-looking schools and districts are evaluating and upgrading their wide area networks (WANs) and metropolitan area networks (MANs) to ensure that they operate under high usage, adapt to flexible configurations, and withstand interruptions and bandwidth surges. This white paper by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) reviews the pros and cons of different options and showcases best practices to help district leaders plan and execute their own network upgrades.
Engineering is one of the most critical occupations in the United States today. Engineers are needed to provide the technological leadership and innovation that is necessary to accelerate United States’ economic prosperity. Yet, we are dealing with a double whammy: there is a shortage of engineers in the United States, a finding that has led the National Academy of Engineering to re-emphasize engineering education for 2020. At the same time, engineers leave the field at a rate four times that of doctors, three and a half times that of lawyers and judges, and 15-30% more than nurses or college teachers (Preston, 1994). The status quo cannot be sustained and something has to change. While we need to train more engineers, it is also critical to fully engage the engineers currently working in the field. The payoff for investing your time and effort to this research is potentially big: change the national conversation and provide critical data to policy-makers, organizations, and other stakeholders.

As part of this partnership, Einstein in a Box will be participating in Destination Imagination’s Global Finals 2014 Innovation Expo, as well as hosting a special Facebook giveaway for Destination Imagination participants.
"Most teachers and current textbooks offer varied approaches to the material to be learned so the teaching can be brain-compatible with the varied student learning styles. It is only logical that respect for these individual learning styles be incorporated into assessment forms."
Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2. I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam. I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.
Sounds like some great ideas to stimulate critical thinking
All 5 assessment methods involves students leading the learning. Asking the students questions based on their reading of the topic helps their analytical skills and allows them to be in charge of their learning.
