We live in a world in which we are starting to understand the complexities of the systems we "engineer." Our understanding of the complexities of engineered systems is rapidly increasing because science has given us a better understanding of the complexities of life itself. The freshman learning experience discussed in this paper is an attempt to introduce engineering freshmen to representative concepts presented in classical simple engineering systems and to expose them to an understanding of complex system concepts through critical thinking and experiential learning.
