Undergraduate, Informal / multi-age

A growing concern among engineering educators is that students are losing both the critical skill of sketched diagrams and the ability to take a real system and reduce it to an accurate but simplified free-body diagram (FBD), partially due to their discomfort with sketching. To remedy this, a sketch-recognition based tutoring system has been developed that guides students in developing their free hand sketching skills and increases their sketches confidence. Engineers use quick free-hand sketches to quickly and effectively communicate engineering design ideas, draw FBDs that are used as the basis for mathematical models and analysis, and in the process of generating design concepts. Sketching confidence and skill supports engineering design and innovation.
