So I’m going to do something a little different here for the next six weeks. The new semester has swept in, bringing with it the usual panic-inducing list of reading assignments, homework problems, projects and essays.
Much to my surprise, however, each week for the next six weeks my Mechanical Design 1 professor has assigned reflective essays on a range of engineering, education and work/life topics. In reviewing the essay topics, I realized that most of them could be easily reworked into blog posts that might be just right for Extra Credit Life.
So get ready, faithful readers, starting with this week’s post you’ll come along with me into the world of assigned essay topics. I’ll trim the essays down a bit as needed and add a little more personal commentary than I might turn in for credit, but I think it will be an interesting little detour. Hope you agree!
