Title: Using engineering to teach physics

It seems everyone is talking engineering these days and physics classes seem like a good place to teach some engineering. However, how do we fit yet another thing into our full curriculum? Participants in this hands-on workshop will learn about engineering projects that work within any physics or physical science curriculum and go beyond guess and check strategies.
