During Design & Engineering, students will learn about the Engineering Design Process by designing and fabricating a small-scale 3D-printed race car. The students will design their car based on research on aerodynamics and will test and evaluate prototypes for a carbon dioxide-powered race car.
Students will also be introduced to hand and digital fabrication processes such as the application of 3D modeling software and 3D printing. The final test of the prototypes will take place as a head-to-head race competition.
Those who are considering engineering school will enjoy this course as well as those who are not necessarily inclined toward traditional engineering programs.
