Description: Three-plus years ago, the Electrical Engineering Department at North Dakota State University introduced 'scholar teams' as a mechanism for enhancing learning in engineering, with especial emphasis on the undergraduate level. These teams contain participants from beginning undergraduates through advanced graduate students, supervised by one or more faculty. Each team addresses a focused area of technology where the faculty supervisor possesses particular expertise, most often through current research. Over the first three years, the concept has emerged as an occasional engine for generation of new product innovation and has launched one new fledgling commercial venture that has achieved state-wide recognition. Several of the scholar teams have now morphed into product and enterprise innovation groups. Along the same time-line, the Manufacturing Engineering faculty have been striving to introduce new process science and production technologies into undergraduate learning. These two notions have been merged into an innovation-focused scholar team in the realm of micro-manufacturing, initially focusing on product innovation in medical and dental surgical instrument and implant applications. The paper will begin by outlining the scholar team concept and summarizing first-three-year results. Then, the background, structure and activities of the micro-manufacturing scholar-venture team will be discussed. Integration of exploration and learning will be highlighted. Concluding observations will be offered concerning possible migration of the concept to other interested institutions.
