Finding Innovative Thermal Materials: an Application Experience for Engineering Training
Cover the needs of today's society without compromising the resources of the future is the challenge posed by
engineering schools to their students, in this work we expose a training experience, by which theoretical concepts of physics
are developed, such as heat transfer and balance using as a means of learning the development of an engineering project with
social and environmental awareness. This type of learning achieves very good results in understanding of abstract concepts
since it manages to build them from action, not discourse, in addition to providing future engineers with the competencies
required for innovation and entrepreneurship.
