Abstract: Three experiments were developed this past year and introduced to three ME control courses. These experiments aim to increase student active learning. In this seminar we share the instructor's experience of developing them and teaching them. It was fun and rewarding!
Experiment 1: Haptic Interface for Hands-on Dynamics Teaching
Experiment 2: Virtual Controls Laboratory
Experiment 3: Control of Bicycle Dynamics, "the BitterCycle"
