Title: "Engineering 101, Part 1"
Author: Teshia R., 2010

Short Description:
This story is about how the 1981 Hyatt Regency Tragedy affected many lives and changed engineering protocols and standards.

I Want Viewers to Take Away:
I want students who are studying to become engineers to understand the importance of their roles as engineers and the need for them to uphold professionalism, integrity, and accountability in the field. I also want them to see the human consequences that can result when those qualities are not present.

Some Broader Impact Possibilities:
This story could be used as a prompt for student research and class discussions regarding the Hyatt Tragedy and how the tragedy could have been prevented by the engineers involved in the design and building of the structure. Also, the story serves as an example of how digital storytelling can be used in the more empirical disciplines, including science, engineering, and math.

This digital story was facilitated by Dr. Teshia Roby and included in the OPUS Collective by permission.
