This mini workshop is organized to provide an interactive forum for the introduction of a set of five new curriculum modules developed under IEEE's Real World Engineering Projects (RWEP) program. The modules, which are representative of a larger collection of curriculum modules available to the public via an open-access RWEP web portal, are designed for use in the first-year engineering and computer science classroom, and are hands-on, team-based projects that emphasize the societal impact of
