Engineering Design and Development

Not available for the 2014-2015 school year.

In this capstone course, students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a valid open-ended technical problem by applying the engineering design process. Students perform research to choose, validate, and justify a technical problem. After carefully defining the problem, teams design, build, and test their solutions while working closely with industry professionals who provide mentoring opportunities. Finally, student teams present and defend their original solution to an outside panel.
This course is designed for 12th grade students who have completed POE, IED, and at least one specialization course.
