The ENGAGE project worked with the authors of the Introduction to 3D Spatial Visualization: An Active Approach textbook and workbook to provide educators with customizable PowerPoint presentations to introduce nine spatial reasoning curriculum modules. At Michigan Tech 80% of female engineering students who took a spatial skills course using a curriculum developed by Sheryl Sorby -- one of the authors of the textbook and PowerPoint presentations –- were retained, compared to 50% of the women who didn't take the course.
