Author information


Hands-on and haptic educational materials, which were developed for use in university lecture classes of the Mechanical Engineering Department, were diverted to visiting lectures in high schools and an interdisciplinary meetup online. Sets of materials were fabricated to improve students’ basic knowledge of mechanical design and machine elements. For outreach in engineering and manufacturing, one subject relating to tolerance was selected mainly from these materials. For the visiting lectures, before the COVID-19 situation, the materials were brought and given to the students in a classroom to touch and interact with; after the situation, they were used as demonstration tools. For the online meetup, a short video was made by playing the materials with our hands and uploading them on the website. The materials and videos would help high school students and different fields’ audiences become interested in engineering and understand its function.
