WHO SHOULD APPLY TO TAKE THIS COURSE?


Any innovative student who enjoys the challenges of learning towards designing and then creating. Two types of students will particularly benefit from Engineering. Firstly, a student who excels in math or science and is interested in pursuing related fields. Secondly, a student who might need help to understand some of the concepts from science class as they will be helped by playing with and building science-based project challenges.

WHAT WILL WE BUILD?


Many fun projects which incorporate themes of science. Depending on student interest and learning needs, the instructor will choose from a variety of engaging challenges.

CO2 DRAGSTER
Using our newly established drawing and drafting skills, our first challenge will be

to design the fastest CO2 powered car. Using our race times, we will discuss and calculate velocity.

TREBUCHET CATAPULT
Developing our knowledge and skills of working with simple machines and calculating forces, we will then build a trebuchet which must throw a golf ball 100 yards. The winner will be the one who gets closest to the pin!

Developing a strong foundation in Engineering or Applied Science early is a crucial step towards doing well in numerous areas. Whether you would like to design a shelf for the garage or an eco-friendly carbon neutral engine, having this foundation in Engineering will give you a great start in learning towards design development. Engineering will be a rewarding and valuable learning experience for the home builder or the future scientist/engineer.
LONG TERM INVESTMENT

The Engineering curriculum was developed with Science 10 and Grade 11 Physics in mind. The main purpose was to prepare students for these sometimes difficult courses. Students will be given time to explore some of the basic physics principles through hands on learning. As well, we will find the value of math and algebra as it helps us through our design process.

BRIDGE BUILDING CHALLENGE


Learning about bridge design and developing our own bridge will force us to calculate the forces at each truss.

Any student looking to enter the field of engineering will need to be comfortable with Math 12 and Physics 11, and depending upon the institution, Physics 12, Chemestry12 and Calculus. Below are websites describing the entrance requirements to UBC Engineering and BCIT.

SMALL GAS ENGINES


A short study of small engine design and application will help us to look critically at a Honda gas engine through disassembly and re-building.

ALTERNATIVE FUEL
Upon understanding the basic function of the gas engine, we will begin to explore alternative forms of fuel. Environmental impact and
