Design & Modeling: Grade 6Instructor: Michaud, C.
Pre-Engineering: Design & Modeling
The Design & Modeling courses highlight the design process and encourage students to be creative and critical thinkers as they use the principles of engineering to solve problems. As pre-engineers, students are expected to document their thinking and techniques through journaling activities and portfolio creation. Grading is largely determined by these portfolios and through successful completion of design challenges.
Design & Modeling (Tech A) meets twice per week for nine weeks. Topics covered include:
- Communication and Teamwork in Engineering
- Graphic Design
- Introductory 3D Design
- Forces and Loads
- Specifications and Constraints
