Course Description

Design, wire-up, and build digital and physical modern marvels in this brand-new engineering course! The fun starts with students using a special computer program to design and build a digital rocket ship and attempt to land on the virtual moon! Students will also work hands-on to attempt multiple engineering feats. Students will be challenged to create projects with high structural integrity using limited materials. Another set of activities uses the Arduino Microcontroller platform. Students will construct circuits and program their microcontroller in genuine C++ (programming language)

What’s cool: This course combines software, hardware, and hands-on building activities
