Madison Longboard is a pilot curriculum resarch study sponsored by the Designing Education Lab and Stanford University's Epicenter. This curriculum uses a business school-type case study instructional technique that incorporates important solid mechanics concepts within the context of an entrepreneurship case study and hands-on lab.
The concepts covered by these two lab experiences are shown below and are considered core engineering concepts for an entry-level mechnical engineering student and basic business concepts for a new entrepreneurial student. Lab B corresponds to the "Choosing a Truck" lab and Lab G corresponds to the "Designing a Deck" lab.
