Engineering 

This course introduces foundational concepts of engineering. 

 

Students will

-apply the scientific method to engineering 

-demonstrate architectural designs

-enact physics concepts

-problem-solve

-combine creativity and scientific exploration

-confront scientific considerations encountered in the engineering fields

-test the fortitude of their created structures 

-identify scientifically defined types of force 

 Projects will include building catapults, bridges, rollercoasters, and mazes.  

Students will apply the scientific method to engineering and demonstrate basic architectural designs and physics concepts.  Each class will combine creative thinking and scientific exploration to create building projects such as catapults, bridges, mazes.  Students will test the fortitude of their structures using different scientifically defined types of energy.  As they observe and apply forces to their designs, students will become familiar with the scientific considerations faced by engineers.
