Engineering

 

  • Explore and experience a wide range of innovative projects such as catapults, suspension bridges, and electric cars.

 

  • Work as individuals and teams to research, design, fabricate, and test unique engineering projects for competitions.

 

  • Find creative solutions to complex engineering challenges using advanced mathematics, chemistry, and physics.

 

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.

 

What Students Are Saying

The program has everything I expected it to have and more. The addition of inviting industries to teach us new skills is something that would be very helpful in the long run. - Conner

I like the amount of responsibility and freedom. - River

We always seem to work together, even if we mess around sometimes. :-) I enjoy the bigger projects and more time spent on that. - Emily
