Abstract

This paper looks at the many times we’ve been told “that won’t work because we’ve always done it this way” in education. Which we ignored, largely because we weren’t the ones that tried and, more importantly, because sometimes it’s just about feeding cheese to lactose intolerant volcano gods and waiting to see what happens. From monster trucks to escape rooms, dinosaurs to scavenger hunts, and X-Men to Lego, we take a journey through some of the weird and wonderful ways that we’ve tried to make surveying and engineering education not just more authentic, but also engaging without compromising curriculum. In some cases we’ve had success, and in others we’ve taken a few attempts to get it right. And in some cases, we’ve ended up needing to convince security guards at international airports that our students are honestly doing an assignment about zombies.
