      • Enhance creativity and build students’ confidence in their ability to handle challenging assignments.
      • Present steps to bring a product from concept to functional prototype: defining specs, developing concepts through research and ideation methods, modeling performance, developing working drawings, selecting materials, and constructing, testing, and revising a working prototype.

      Students must have completed Algebra II, Trigonometry, and one lab science course with an A/B letter grade. There will be an additional materials/lab fee for this course. A laptop is required for this course.
