The One-Hour Design of Experiments Course

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]A one-hour introductory course in design of experiments (DOE) is described that has been designed to attract high school students to study science and engineering in general and quality management in particular. The course is inspired by the Pepsi Challenge and is evaluated on the basis of "Seven Good Principles to Achieve Good Learning." Results show it is possible to covey the benefits of statistical thinking to students with limited knowledge of mathematics and statistics within a short period of time.
