As Peter Brown and colleagues argued in their book Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning, a project could be very useful in that it adds a wild variation to the repertoire of students’ retrieval practice (Brown, Roediger, and McDonald, 2014). Because doing a project like these described here requires an interdisciplinary mind and skill set, it is plausible to think that the knowledge students gain will be better retained. Further, these projects (and also many other similar efforts in education) present another paradigm of a flipped classroom.

By periodically reviewing new learning and development approaches, businesses help ensure their individual employees and organizational structures stay fresh (Manning, Verenikina, & Brown, 2005). , Cooper Union) has employed performing artists to develop leadership, teamwork, and communication skills in engineering students, the business sector has also looked to performing arts ensembles as viable models for organizational restructuring. This is quite a reversal of the usual business–arts relationship where art groups solicit the financial graces of corporations.

To prepare the new renaissance artificers, we must learn from other disciplines, to design learning environments where students are free to observe, explore, collaborate, and discover their own potential. Many engineering subjects are abstract with complex concepts, overloading students with sophisticated knowledge. Students are more eager to learn when they see their classroom projects proving scientific principles rather than simply having to memorize principles found in text books. Students are more encouraged to explore and take risk when they see their teachers are artists themselves rather than as subject experts only—taking risks by implementing creative projects with outcomes not always straightforward to assess.
