Class experience

  • Engineers play an essential role in our everyday lives, from designing reliable transportation means to simply aiding our Earth clean. In our Engineering class, students will learn about engineers' roles and how their designs contribute to everyday life. Students will put on their engineering caps and test their abilities by creating different projects related to the engineering field discussed for the day. Students will learn that being an engineer starts as a model and will create model designs using everyday household items to complete projects. With the instructor's guide, students will learn that they can be a part of the engineering process if they are willing to try.
