Fall 2017

Future Software Engineers: Creating & Designing Software & Tools (Grades 9th - 11th)
This course represents an introduction to software engineering and object-oriented programming, using the Java programming language. The main focus of the course is on developing high quality, working software that solves real problems. The course is designed for students with and without some programming experience. Students will learn how to write programs in Java, test them and evaluate their quality using several real-world software tools.

Integrated Engineering Design and Production (Grades 7th - 8th)
This class is designed to give students an opportunity to use the engineering process to problem solve a number of tasks within the field of mechanical engineering and aerospace. The problem solving and critical thinking aspects includes the opportunity to improve and retest their original
Design.
 

Fall 2016

DYI Arduino Robots (Grades 7th - 8th)
In this course, students will learn how to use the Arduino microcontroller to control a functioning robot.  The robot can sense the world around it by light, touch, or sound.  Students will engage in the engineering design process as well as gain knowledge of motors, sensors, soldering, and the Arduino microcontroller.

Spring 2016

ACT-SAT Prep (Grades 10th - 11th)
Students will learn fundamental mathematics needed to successfully execute math portion of ACT and SAT tests. Students will learn, analyze and practice basic mathematics and problems related to tests. This class is suited for students who are preparing to take ACT or SAT tests over the next six to 18 months.
