Abstract
This paper introduces involvement of the hands-on learning method. According to the modern environment of technology, engineering students have to realize the multidisciplinary nature of engineering systems. This learning technique is essential to offer students the necessary skills to master practical, organizational and work-group cleverness. The work is concerned with the redesign, construction and operation of two models of sailing boats. The approach of the work and final outputs are illustrated.
