25503 - Engineering IV



In this capstone course, students will be working in teams, spending the semester solving problems of their own choosing. These teams apply principles developed in the previous engineering courses and are guided by a community mentor. Skills applied include: brainstorming possible solutions and action planning, researching current patents and regulations, constructing a working model, testing in real-life applications and simulations, and documenting the designs in addition to presenting the designs to a panel of industry experts. Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) standards will be an integral part of this class. Dual credit may be obtained for this program at high schools offering this option. An honors option is available to all students enrolled in the course. Successful completion of the program may qualify students to receive the Mastery of Subject Area Graduation Endorsement. Students are encouraged to work with their program teachers to determine eligibility.
