This session will focus on sharing the transformation of a course project as a result of the 2019 Faculty Learning Community on ‘3D Printing and Maker Technologies.’ During Fall 2018, a new course project structured around the NASA Robotic Mining Competition and  NASA Human Rover Competition was introduced to provide over 40 students with authentic hands-on experience to design and demonstrate mechanical systems. The NASA competitions are design-based challenges for university-level students to design and build 1) a mining robot that can traverse the challenging simulated chaotic off-world terrain or 2) a vehicle designed to traverse the simulated surface of another world. Student teams designed and 3D printed a system in addition to submitting an initial proposal, a midterm-report and a final presentation and report. Each project was connected to an engineering student organization – UMaker and ASME who consulted on the project designs. This session will share the major course changes, and  discuss the opportunities and challenges this course redesign offered students.
