Next Generation of Engineers

A 6th-8th Grade Engineering Program at Wheeling High School

EXPLORATIONS IN ENGINEERING (E.E.)

In this course, students use AutoDesk Inventor (solid modeling software) as they investigate the engineering design process. Utilizing the design process, students understand how engineering and engineering design influences their daily lives and may lead to future careers. Students also learn sketching techniques and use descriptive geometry as a component of design, measurement, and computer modeling. Students brainstorm, research, develop ideas, create models, test and evaluate design ideas, and communicate solutions.

Projects & Activities May Include the Following Technologies:

  • 3D Printing & Solid CAD Modeling Software
  • 2D Sketching & Laser Etching/Cutting/Engraving
  • CNC Plasma Cutting & MIG Welding Machines
