You learn best by doing things – think about working a computer, or a camera, or driving a car. Similarly, you don’t become a good at something just by going to class or reading about it, you must solve problems, conduct experiments, go to the field and get wet and muddy, and not be afraid to strike out on your own (not too difficult in the age of Google) in pursuit of your ideas. You’ll struggle with real-world questions and open-ended projects – this is normal. I won’t know all the answers – how interesting would science and engineering be if we already knew all the answers? So expect my classes to include these things, maybe a bit, maybe a lot!

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn – attributed to Ben Franklin
