National Instruments believes that the best way to encourage students to pursue careers in engineering and science is to provide engaging, hands-on learning experiences with real-world engineering tools. To inspire today’s students to become tomorrow’s innovators, NI has invested in a wide range of technologies that support the teaching of fundamental engineering concepts.
The educator workshop was a FREE half-day seminar to get hands-on with this remarkable technology. Check out some other academic resources!

|09:30||Hands-On: Teaching Solutions for Circuit Design
Get hands-on with NI ELVIS and NI Multisim to see how a fully integrated tool chain can be used to teach analogue, digital and power circuit fundamentals.
During the workshop, you will use Multisim, a best-in-class SPICE simulation environment, to quickly design a circuit. You will then physically prototype the circuit with the ELVIS platform, using its integrated suite of instruments to compare real world measurements to the simulation results.
Hands on: Teaching Solutions for Measurements and Instrumentation
Sensors, measurements and instrumentation are the cornerstones of hands-on learning in engineering. This workshop allows you to get hands on with NI myDAQ, the low-cost data acquisition platform that enables students to measure and analyse live signals anywhere, anytime.
You will stream audio data from the NI myDAQ before performing custom waveform processing and analysis with LabVIEW. The exercises will introduce fundamental LabVIEW programming concepts, and showcase how intuitive measurement instrumentation can really be.
Learn about NI myDAQ.
Hands on: Teaching Solutions for Embedded and Control
Get hands-on with the revolutionary NI myRIO device. Featuring a powerful dual-core processor, customisable Xilinx FPGA, integrated WiFi and dozens flexible analogue and digital I/O channels, NI myRIO was designed specifically to help students design real, complex engineering systems more quickly and affordably than ever before.
Exercises show how to leverage graphical programming to create deterministic, stand alone systems.
