High School: Engineering Design
Engineering design is an essential accompaniment to other scientific practices and content. Engineering design fosters problem-solving skills and empowers students to make better decisions as employees, consumers and citizens in today’s society.
High school engineering expands on student knowledge of engineering design concepts and connections between engineering, technology, science and society. Students will gain a deeper insight into local, national and global issues by examining how science and engineering work together.
By the end of high school, students will be able to explore complex problems that include issues of social and global significance. They will be able to to use mathematics and/or computer simulations to test solutions under different conditions, prioritize criteria, consider trade-offs, and assess social and environmental impacts.
