CFISD 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.
