In this popular Engineering Leadership Lab, fondly known as "Blast Off", GELs (Gordon Engineering Leaders) practiced the skills of resourcefulness, ingenuity, and decision making. The formed teams, created a plan, obtained resources, and built a project (a water-propelled rocket) to customer requirements within budget and on schedule.

If this sounds like something MIT graduates will be expected to do when they get a job in the engineering industry, that's on purpose.
