8th Grade- Engineering Our World

Engineering Our World is a seven-week hands on exploratory course for eighth grade students of varied abilities.  The course is designed to develop students’ problem solving, practical and technological skills.

Design, Construction, and Materials Technologies explores the design process and how it relates to construction.  Students learn to work in cooperative groups, apply the design loop to problems and construct design portfolios.  Lab activities require students to collect data, develop documentation, construct technical drawings, construct prototypes and models, conduct experiments and assess test data.

The goal of the course is to make students aware of the transition process as it relates to industries using the sequential steps they must take to make this transition.
