Inside the Classroom
Playing Solitaire to learn numerical methods. Building, simulating and racing a miniature model car to understand robotics. Exploring how to make materials from particle-based processes. Faculty are working to immerse students in interdisciplinary learning at Lehigh. These videos take viewers inside some of Lehigh's classrooms and labs, with professors engaging students in both research and the learning process and encouraging curiosity.
Lehigh Professor Rosa Zheng teaches a five-week Introduction to Robotics class for first-year engineering students as part of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department lab course. Here, students learn to build, simulate and race a one-tenth scale Ford Fiesta.
Commonly known as the senior lab, Mechanical Engineering 207 introduces different types of mechanics to engineering majors. In this video, assistant professor Ebru Demir teaches the mechatronics portion of the semester.
Deirdre Murphy, teaching assistant professor in art, architecture and design, instructs Lehigh students on the fundamentals of drawing in her Drawing One course. The course is available to any student interested in building skills in drawing from observation.
Hannah Dailey '02 '06G '09G, an associate professor in the department of Mechanical Engineering & Mechanics at Lehigh, teaches numerical methods by mixing what students are learning with games such as Solitaire to help make a fun and tangible connection.
James Gilchrist, the Ruth H. and Sam Madrid Professor of chemical and biological engineering at Lehigh, runs the Laboratory for Particle Mixing and Self-Organization. The lab explores making materials from particle-based processes.
