Course Overview

This course investigates various topics in science, technology, computer programming , engineering, and mathematics using a series of projects and problems that are both meaningful and relevant to the students lives. Students will develop engineering skills, including design principles, modeling, and presentations, using a variety of computer hardware and software applications to complete assignments and projects. This is a course that focuses on practical applications of science and mathematics to solve real-world issues. Prototyping and project based learning are therefore essential components of the course. Upon completing this course, students will have an understanding of the application of science and mathematics in engineering and will be able to make informed decisions concerning real-world problems. Furthermore, students will have worked on a design team to develop a product or system. Throughout the program, students step into the varied roles engineers play in our society, solve problems in their homes and communities, discover new career paths and possibilities, and develop engineering knowledge and skills. There are no particular math or science prerequisites for this course, just an interest in using STEM to solve problems and a desire to learn!
