• Advanced Engineering Technology Syllabus-

    Corequisites: Advanced Physics 1
    Prerequisite: College Prep Algebra 2 or higher
    Course description:  Advanced Engineering gives qualified juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn about and experience engineering topics though direct instruction, class work, activities, tests, labs and projects. Students will also experience engineering through guest speakers, field trips and face-to-face interactions with practicing engineers.  STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts are emphasized throughout.  Students will learn about parametric modeling, advanced manufacturing of prototype parts, creating and testing models and full size prototypes and participate in design reviews.  This course is nested with Advanced Physics 1, so physics concepts are illuminated through engineering projects throughout the year.
