Description:

While eGFI may sound like a curious acronym, it is actually quite straightforward: "Engineering, Go For It!" The site is designed for teachers and maintained by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The materials here are divided into six primary sections, including Class Activities, Web Resources, Lesson Plans, and Features. This last area is a real pip, including updates on everything from aerospace's application in the field of yacht design to Plagiarism Education Week. The Web Resources area brings together updates about useful new sites such as Daily Science News and a clutch of links on Earth Day. Of course, visitors won't want to miss the Lesson Plans area. Here they will find over 200 plans that include "Shake It Up with Seismographs" and "Working Together To Live Together," which invites students to experience civil and environmental engineering by planning a housing development. Finally, interested parties can read the engaging eGFI magazine, read student blogs, or check out the site's in-house video channel, E-Tube. [KMG]
