Welcome to the world of Engineering as we learn through the use of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). During the course of this year we are going to learn, and then apply, many of the engineering concepts that are in use around the world today. We will look at the careers in engineering as well as the effects that engineers have had on society and the environment. Throughout the year, we will be using the computer and its 3D design software to solve many different types of problems. We will also take a look at different types of materials and geometric shapes to see how they have affected the designs and the world we live in. This class is a self-driven class that requires the student learner to think critically and outside of the box. Being a critical thinker and learning how to apply your logic will come with the experiences and knowledge that you will gain throughout this class.
