Fun, original, and exciting collection of project-based engineering lessons for kids.If you enjoy these projects, then I encourage you to buy my book, Rubber Band Engineer. It's a full-color-photo book full of more project plans that range from the surprisingly simple to the curiously complex, and some have their roots right here at Instructables. -----These project-based lessons focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering. Physical models are built from a similar set of materials that can be easily sourced online (links are provided in-lesson). All of the project plans in this collection are designed to be used in an after school enrichment setting, though you may use and modify these ideas for other not-for-profit purposes provided you cite The Workshop for Young Engineers.This is a growing and improving collection of lesson plans. Please comment to share your ideas to improve lessons and photos of your designs.
Using Red Ink on Yellow Paper for Memory Enhancement
Using Red Ink on Yellow Paper for Memory Enhancement ~ "I was enrolled in a local Technical College in a 2 yr Civil Engineering Technology program. One of the instructors insisted we do all of our rough calculations & drawings on yellow paper but w/ red ink. There were about 20 students in the class & none of us had heard of this method. He said he had heard from a psychologist friend that the combination of red on yellow was helpful w/ memory." (Dyslexia Victoria Online)
