AKA "SciTech Part 2", Engineering Design was created to meet the needs of LASA students who are dedicated to furthering their training in the field of engineering and applied physics. Engineering is simply the act of informed and creative problem-solving. This course challenges students to apply the knowledge they acquire in their math and science classes to real situations, utilizing skills ranging from project management and perseverance to 3D computer design and safe power tool operation. Students should expect a rigorous schedule and workload both in and outside of class. Much like in SciTech, the expectations are high but the reward of successful accomplishment is higher still.
Engineering Design is a science elective for Juniors and seniors. Students must have taken Physics or currently be in Physics. The course does count as a 4th year science. It is also considered a CTE course.
