A new project for the enhancement of undergraduate engineering courses via the use of computers in the classroom is being developed at Penn State University. This project involves the introduction of simulation, experiment, and teamwork in courses traditionally containing neither. We briefly describe our approach and detail some of the important issues and hurdles that we have encountered during its implementation. It is our purpose that this information will assist other educators in implementing the Interactive Mechanics concept or learning environments like it.
