They can actually work on something, as opposed to just turning in an assignment for a grade. They have to explain what they did. They have to build it. They have to explain what they did wrong and keep on going.

My first exposure to real world problem solving was with EAFab in the STEAM program. This experience directed me to pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering and eventually a career in consulting. In my role, I will be solving difficult problems for clients which is similar to the work I was able to do with EAFab!
Brad Kszastowski, Instructor
The problems posed to them by EAFab were varied in scope and required the students to explore new subject areas that they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about.

Working with EAFab allowed me to explore the different types of engineering, before I had to actually settle on a single one. They also showed me the importance of different characteristics of the job, while teaching me to adapt varied skills with the help of my colleagues.
