Design Thinking for Innovation 15
This dynamic and innovative program provides students with a practical, hands-on experience in an interactive state-of-the-art lab environment. Students may work with a 3-D printer, a variety of robots, pneumatics, electrical controls, wind/solar technologies, mechanical automation, electrical fabrication, computer added design, pump systems, bridge building, and more. Students work in teams to design and build actual objects. We recommend students enrolling in this course have a strong background in mathematics and science.
Design Thinking for Innovation 25
Building on experiences in Pre-Engineering 15, students complete a combination of foundational skills which will allow students to choose projects based on their area of interest. Skills available include robotic programming, climate control systems, product development, security systems, electronic controls, production planning, electro-assembly, thermal systems, electrical fabrication, pump systems, pneumatics, 3D printing, structural systems, mechanical drive systems, environmental application systems, microprocessors, robotic vision/kinematics and behavior as well as various project based components. At the end of the course, students will complete a culminating project which will combine several aspects of engineering to solve situational problems. Pre-Engineering 25 will include designing and building a personal hovercraft.
Design Thinking for Innovation 35
The Pre-Engineering courses create awareness towards the Engineering discipline.Pre-Engineering 35 not only teaches students about the different types of engineering such as civil, structural, and many others, but also showcases the steps to become an engineer. A key component to this process is the focus on the development of critical thinking skills required in the engineering field. Those students with a keen focus to pursue this area more intensely can do so through our hands-on-curriculum.
