dc.description.abstract Fifty percent of students entering engineering programs do not earn an engineering degree. Many students leave engineering because unsatisfactory experiences in introductory engineering courses in their first and second years. Improving student engagement through the use of everyday examples is one key ENGAGE strategy because research indicates that this strategy has a powerful impact upon students’ satisfaction with and perseverance in engineering. This project implemented Everyday Engineering Examples (E^3s) in four engineering classes to teach technical concepts through a ENGAGE E^3s mini-grant. This paper introduces ENGAGE project and E^3s and shares the benefits of our E^3s mini-grant experience and strategies of using the E^3s examples in engineering classes. en_US
