15歳から学士水準までの高専学生に対する複合・融合型創造性教育 Multi-Disciplinary Type Creativity Education for Students from 15 years old to Bachelor Level in College of Technology
Creativity is the most fundamental keyword for engineers to solve the various problems in manufacturing products. This engineering "learning" cannot be achieved without the real experiences, especially by the teens who have the curiosity to know everything. New educational program has been innovated in Miyagi National College of Technology. This new curriculum started as "03C" in 2003. It involves two laboratories for mixed-departments type grouping, which intend to cultivate the creative ability for the 2nd year students in College Course and the 1st year students in Advanced Course as Engineering Design. This paper presents the trial of the new educational program on the cultivating creative ability designed for teen-agers, and discusses the processes in detail, results and further problems. This program will progress still more with continuous improvement of manufacturing subjects in cooperative with educational-industrial complex.
