Adaptable for Any School

Engineer Your World courses are designed with flexibility in mind. Both courses can be offered as a standalone anywhere in an appropriate STEM or CTE pathway, or can be combined to create an introductory or capstone course sequence. We strongly recommend that students complete Algebra I before starting EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis. Additional prerequisites may be required depending on how a school chooses to classify the course.

Here are some of the ways in which partner schools use Engineer Your World courses. If you would like to discuss which approach is right for your school, please contact us.

Pathway Foundational IIStandalone Electives

Schools use either EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis or EYW: Engineering Applications of Computer Science as standalone electives to maximize flexibility for students (and for scheduling). This offers a unique opportunity to engage students from one or multiple grade levels in collaborative problem solving.


Pathways Foundational

Foundational Course

Schools seeking a solid foundation for an existing STEM or CTE pathway use EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis to give students a solid foundation in engineering design and to motivate future math and science learning.


Pathway Foundational IIFoundational Sequence

Schools use EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis and EYW: Engineering Applications of Computer Science as a foundational sequence for multiple pathways to provide students with a strong foundation in engineering design and contextualized computing.

Students are empowered with the skills and self-awareness to choose further coursework in engineering, robotics, or computer science. In the future, schools seeking a four-year engineering sequence may use the planned third course from Engineer Your World followed by a capstone community service project.


Pathway Foundational II“CS for All” Foundational Sequence

Schools use EYW: Engineering Applications of Computer Science and EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis as a foundational sequence for multiple pathways to provide students with a contextualized, hands-on, project-based approach to “computer science for all.”

Students who enjoy coding move on to higher-level computer science coursework and students who enjoy design move on to EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis, followed by other engineering or robotics coursework. In the future, schools seeking a four-year engineering sequence may use the planned third course from Engineer Your World followed by a capstone community service project.


Pathway Foundational IICapstone Course

Schools use EYW: Engineering Design and Analysis as a capstone course to prepare students for college-level STEM coursework. Students synthesize prior STEM learning to create more sophisticated solutions to the design challenges, possibly even earning dual enrollment credit for their work. Offering the courses as a capstone experience allows teachers to elevate performance expectations to provide a bridge between high school and college coursework.
