IED-Introduction to Engineering Design
Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science and engineering standards to hands-on projects like designing a new toy or improving an existing product. In this course, students use 3D solid modeling design software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems. Student will learn how to document their work and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community. This course is designed for 9th and 10th grade students. The major focus of the IED course is to expose students to the design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, global and human impacts, engineering standards and technical documentation.
