This paper describes the instructional design, implementation, and assessment of a virtual laboratory based on a numerical simulation of a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process, the virtual CVD laboratory. The virtual CVD laboratory provides a capstone experience in which students synthesize engineering science and statistics principles and have the(More)
Presently there is a need for more effective ways to integrate statistical methodologies such as Design of Experiments (DOE) into the engineering curriculum. We have developed a virtual chemical vapor deposition (CVD) reactor based on a numerical simulation where students learn and then actually apply DOE. Associated educational materials are also being(More)
To gain insights into the in vivo folding and assembly of bacterial chaperonins, groEL was subjected to insertion mutagenesis using transposon ISlacZ/in. Four GroEL-LacZ fusions and the corresponding insertion mutants were obtained after residues 34, 90, 291, and 367. Apical domain insertion mutants GroEL291 and GroEL367 were degraded into monomeric 30- and(More)
Engineering curricula require effective ways to integrate experimental design into courses and student learning experiences. To address this need, we have developed a virtual laboratory that provides students a capstone experience in which they can apply experimental design in a context similar to that of a practicing engineer in industry. The Virtual CVD(More)
