In a global context, education is seen as a main driving force for social development, and the pen as the best tool for shaping it's future. This also applies to engineering and STEM education. However, traditional pedagogical approaches in teaching and learning are entered around theory and practice "to know how to do engineering and apply technology". The mindset part, to "become an engineer and belong in the tech community" and "to feel how you can create value for society" is often left out. The proposed new pedagogical methodology, called Mind Methodology, includes game-based and student-centred activities related to mindset and personal development of the students. Our vision for this novel methodology is to enhance and broaden traditional engineering and STEM education and, hence, to increase quality in education.
