Class Description

Engineering is about solving problems. It’s about making life better, easier, or more fun to live. It’s about modeling, designing, building, and optimizing solutions while staying within the limitations of a tight budget, or a certain size. In this class students will stretch their creative problem solving skills through hands-on building challenges, team work, and pure fun. Team taught by Laura and Spencer.
