Teaching[edit | edit source]
I am also a strong proponent for service learning in engineering and making change. Utilizing appropriate technology projects to motivate students to learn physics. Also using service learning and commissioned assignments to solve real world environmental problems. Why students should come to Principia 
Courses with a service learning component[edit | edit source]
I have used Appropedia to support the following courses:
- ENGR242 - 3D Printing Technology
- To set up class lists
Resources for Educating Children[edit | edit source]
