Student Day competition report

Improved methods of teaching, including ways of tailoring learning to individual propensities and abilities on a mass scale, can help translate knowledge into innovations that create a more joyous world. We also need to train and educate both teachers and students through new education models, like the Grand Challenge Scholars Program, that focus on developing engineers who will help meet the biggest challenges of our time and lead us toward a better future.
