Engineering & More

Architecture students are working on learning the drawing skills as they do an in-depth study of a well-known building. They'll produce a pencil drawing of the floor plan, and create a semi-transparent overlay with a 3D rendering using ink! Principles of Engineering are exploring the complex world of statics, a category of physics that involves objects that are in static equilibrium - like bridges! The semester will culminate in a bridge-building competition where students will have to solve their own trusses in their design and predict points of failure when their bridge is tested. Intro to Engineering Design is mastering the art of 3D modeling using Autodesk Inventor. They'll use their new skills to design CO2 dragsters (or other vehicles) and race their 3D printed designs. In Engineering Design and Development, students presented their research on a problem that they found to a panel of professionals, and are taking the feedback to begin designing their solutions! This yearlong project allows students to engage deeply with the design process and work to create a production-ready, patentable invention. In Digital Citizenship, students have just started making 360-degree storytelling virtual reality experiences. Using photospheres, which are immersive photographs that surround the viewer, students will create a story or experience for an audience to experience in VR.
