      The Science of Forming
North American researchers have found such a contribution during actual research tests. Theories must be validated by experimental data. However, experimental data duplicated by independent research centers can stand on their own without a theory.
4) Some colleges and universities have made consider- able changes to how they teach technology.
From 1950 to 1985, Professor Donald Eary taught metal- forming at the General Motors Institute (now known as Ket- tering Institute). He knew that having students sit in a class- room all day probably was not the most effective way to learn. So, he and Edward Reed from Chevrolet-Flint Manu- facturing turned some of the classroom days into laboratory days. While the students were enjoying the challenges of the assigned projects, they were being job-trained. Prof. Eary accumulated stacks of data related to metalforming that he and Reed published in their book, Techniques of Presswork- ing Sheet Metal—An Engineering Approach to Die Design.
Let’s fast forward to 2016, where students have free access to technical textbooks and courses available on the Internet. They no longer need to listen to a professor in a crowded classroom repeating the same material. Instead, students can report to the classroom to ask their professor follow-up questions regarding the assigned material. Questioning complete, the students then can head for their respective research laboratories. That’s how we wind up with job-ready workers. MF
