• Introduction to Engineering - Introduction to Engineering provides students an excellent overview of the field of engineering. This course engages students with topics such as an overview of the history of engineering, career choices and the engineering design process. Multi-level hands-on activities involve product design, career seeking and ethics. To conclude the course, a capstone project challenges students to explore engineering. For students on a career track in engineering, Introduction to Engineering serves as an excellent launching pad for more in-depth courses. Exploratory students with little exposure to the field may decide to pursue an engineering career after learning of the many exciting opportunities available!

    Introduction to Industrial Design - In the Introduction to Industrial Design course, students are introduced to what industrial designers do. They redesign a simple office supply product, learn and practice technical drawing techniques, and are introduced to how products are made. They explore what reverse engineering is, the importance of patents, as well as what and how engineering notebooks are formatted and used. Finally, they are introduced to human factors in engineering as well as rapid prototyping. They will also use 3D design software to complete several projects.

    Mechanisms for Intro to STEM - In the Mechanisms course, students examine various components of mechanisms including gears, pulleys, levers, and more. They create several of these simple machines to observe their operation first-hand. The course also instructs students on the calculation of mechanical advantage, force, friction, work, and other measurements associated with mechanisms.

    Engineering Application Series (EAS) - The Engineering Application Series (EAS) is a collection of fun and exciting problem-based learning opportunities. EAS provides students the opportunity to master critical academic, workplace, and life skills while solving real-world challenges. A team of 4-8 students are presented with a real world engineering design challenge. The team then organizes and solves the problem by navigating the design loop process using a unique "Challenge Script” and a variety of worksheets.
