This paper describes the format of an introductory engineering course that applies service learning teaching pedagogy. The semester-long service learning project consists of mentoring elementary and middle school students during an eight week long LEGO robotics competition that is annually held at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The service learning section is currently being offered for the second time by the same instructor and this paper describes adjustments that were made resulting out of the experiences during the first year.
