I believe that education should be a marriage of "hands on" learning as well as conventional teaching practices. I am currently melding my skills as a reader/writer/producer, with those of the engineering field. This will hopefully translate into better reading, fabricating, and writing students. I am using my vast experience in electronics, robotics, and mechanics to join forces with writing, reading, and actual experimentation to try and bring a level of work that will be commensurate to a college educational experience.
I am planning on creating many more educational films, labs, and anything that will fit the constantly changing face of Engineering. Our students must learn the newest things in order to avoid moving out into the real world poorly equipped with antiquated knowledge.
