Full Year – 1 Unit
This course is designed to give upper level science and mathematics students the opportunity to apply theoretical ideas in an engineering environment. Students must have taken or be currently taking Honors or AP Physics. The course will stress using the “Design-Construct-Test” model in various engineering disciplines. Students will work on projects dealing with microgravity, rocketry, flight, robotics, roller coasters, electronics, manufacturing, alternative energies, biospherics and more. These projects will let the student experience a range of engineering genres including mechanical, civil, computer, electrical, systems, mechatronics, aeronautical, structural, biomedical and others. For students in the Engineering and Science Technologies Career Technical Education pathway at Shaker Heights High School, this is one of the required courses.
Concurrent: Physics, IB Physics, or AP Physics
