CFISDCFISD high school students in engineering design and problem solving classes wrapped up their first design challenge of the school year last week, through the University of Texas’ UTeach Engineering curriculum program, Engineer Your World.

Engineer Your World is made possible through a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. The innovative, yearlong high school course is for students who want to learn about engineering and its role in shaping the world. The 2016-2017 school year marks the fourth year for the course to be offered.

In the initial design challenge, The Evolution of Imagery, students were tasked with building a pinhole camera for an arts program that works with disabled individuals with limited hand dexterity.

PasadenaHow does an engineer think, design and solve problems? Ramona students taking Ms. Aulikki Flagan’s Engineer Your World course will find out by solving open-ended problems such as designing and building a pinhole camera for handicapped people, an earthquake-safe building for India, and a drone that can capture images from earth.

Through a partnership with the National Science Foundation, the University of Texas, Austin, Cockrell School of Engineering, and the College of Education at the University of Texas, Ramona students will complete a comprehensive yearlong engineering curriculum.

In this innovative class, students will be challenged to develop the design skills and habits of mind that are central to understanding what makes engineering different from other scientific and technical fields. They will learn how to translate a problem or need into design specifications, and then to conceive and sort through alternate approaches to solving a problem or meeting that need.
