This paper discusses the motivation for, procedure behind, and results of revamping the laboratory component for the introductory engineering electromagnetics course at The Pennsylvania State University. In this course students spend two hours every week complementing what they have learned in lecture and practiced in homework problems with hands-on experience using modern tools and technology to solve real-world problems. Measured using pre- and post-lab surveys, the student responses to these new laboratory activities demonstrate a significant increase in both interest and understanding of topics in electromagnetics.
