Through research, the Designing Education Lab has developed a variety of classroom learning tools. As part of our mission, we want to make these materials publicly available. Here are some of the materials we have developed:



  • Introduction to Solid Mechanics (ENGR-14) Madison LongboardIntroduces entreprenerial concepts into core mechnaical engineering course work. Click on this link for more details and materials.



  • Educating Young Stem Thinkers: The course, which will span two quarters, introduces Stanford students to the design thinking process, the national conversations about the future of STEM careers, and provides opportunities to work with middle school students and K-­12 teachers in STEM-­based after-­school activities and intercession camps. The course will be both theory and practice-­focused: Syllabus


  • D.Loft STEM ITEST: The purpose of this project is to introduce students to STEM engineering careers by leveraging the power of a design thinking approach to learning in school intersession camps. The project centers on the critical need to foster an interest in STEM careers, as it imperative for the United States to compete globally. A focus on innovation, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare our students for the challenges of learning in the 21st century: iTest Statement of Work
