Intro To Engineering
One Year Class:
Spring Semester Only For Students from Fall
Does your teenager love to study science? Do you have a teenager who procrastinates and dislikes his science lessons? . . . or is your teen somewhere between those two extremes?
All teenagers are welcome to take this exciting class, where they will:
Discover basic engineering concepts through hands-on experiments and observations
Learn the basics of how engineers must think:
What questions need to be asked?
What experiments can help us figure out the answers to those questions?
What data should be noticed?
How should that data be recorded and analyzed?
Learn science topics that are often de-emphasized in traditional high school curriculums
Explore the science within the fields of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Bio-Medical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, and many others.
This is a two-semester course. The spring term is only open to students who take the class in the fall.
Homework: about 3 hours per week. This will consist of reading, taking notes, doing research, and creating a project or poster or presentation.
Credit: Each semester, students earn ½ credit in Science (1 full credit for 1 full year). Parents are responsible for managing the transcript for their student. The teacher will communicate the end-of-course grade within 2 weeks of the final class date.
