You will be asked to apply your knowledge of math, physics, engineering, and creative problem solving strategies to complete hands-on, problem-solving and model-building activities. This project based focused exposure to the world of engineering will leave students with a deeper understanding of how things work. Students will have a variety of opportunities to collaborate with others.
