Engineering & Innovation Track
Pre-College Exploration Academy
Behind the structures and products we use in our everyday life, engineers must consider many details before building can commence. Considerations such as technology, budget, materials, and regulations all inform the process. This online academy allows you to think like an engineer and create solutions to real world design challenges.
