​Developing the Curiosity to Explore, the Confidence to Discover, and the Character to Build with Excellence. sm

Explore Engineering:  Grades 9 - 11


Learning Path for a Certificate of Excellence

Engineering Design and It's Process 
The Engineering Design Process and the Action Research Model serve as the foundation for this introduction to Engineering.  Your child will help design innovative solutions in the fields of mechanical or civil engineering to address a real issue impacting the community.  The field is subject to change based upon the community need selected and the interest of the class.

Robotics and the Internet of Things  
Students will surprise themselves having so much fun applying serious science and learning concepts to design, create, and engineer a robot that functions through the Internet.  They use the same concepts and Raspberry Pi from Session 1 to create projects that include ultra sound, light, touch, and other robotic sensors.  They then use their Python expertise to program their robots making them do amazing things!


Aerospace Engineering  
From the smart phone to the television to the watch on their wrist, your child will see the amazing impact of electrical engineering in this class that continues to build upon coding and robotics.  Applying the Engineering Design Process, your child will grasp the power that comes with building circuits that make bells, buzzers, and connections they design.  The anticipation will build as they apply their circuitry skills and knowledge to design and develop their own incredible projects.

Creating Your Own Wearable Technology
This oh-so-cool class just got even cooler!   Combining their knowledge of Python, getting robots to follow codes, and learning to create circuits to program personal commands, students now create the next new thing - Wearable Technology!  Using the Engineering Design Process, students build wearable circuits that help create wearable tech from their sneakers to their book bags to the jackets of their dreams. Your child's imagination will come to light as they become part of creating the future!

Build Program  Engineering  Grades 6 - 8


Learning Path for a Certificate of Excellence


Engineering Design and It's Process 

Your child will delve in the world of engineering by building a solid understanding of the Engineering Design Process and the Action Research Model.  You will apply all of the S.T.E.A.M. components - science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math -  as you innovate solutions in the fields of biology or medicine to solve healthcare problems as you think like a biomedical engineer.  Projects may vary depending upon the interest and capabilities of the class.

Engineering That Gives You The Power 
From the smart phone to the television to the watch on their wrist, your child will see the amazing impact of electrical engineering in this class that continues to build upon coding and robotics.  Applying the Engineering Design Process, your child will grasp the power that comes with building circuits that make bells, buzzers, and connections they design.  The anticipation will build as they apply their circuitry skills and knowledge to design and develop their own incredible projects.

Discovering, Creating Virtual Reality
Your child will go places the school bus never could!  They might travel to Mars while their feet are still firmly planted on the ground right here on Earth. Discover amazing marine-life creatures like sharks, whales, coral fish, stingrays!   Take a trip through the human body using their own, personally-built virtual reality gear to solve a medical mystery!
