How Do I

Get Resources & Content?

Getting the Content and Resources You Need

Need ideas to slot into your existing class? How about a project, an entire course, or even a curriculum-wide plan?

An Engineering Unleashed "card" is an online template for faculty and staff to share modules, projects, classes, and more. Across a variety of disciplines, you'll get lesson plans, walkthroughs, instructor tips, presentation templates, student artifacts, and other resources to use and adapt for your own needs. You can leave feedback and post questions for the card authors right on the card itself, too.

And, cards make it easy to implement the entrepreneurial mindset (EM)!

How to find cards:
