Senior School Design & Engineering Programs

Woodworking Design 
Using skills in drafting, orthographic drawing, motion physics and wood construction, students build a mousetrap-powered race car and other projects.

Applying STEM pillars (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and using software such as CAD, GPS/GIS mapping tools and 3D animation, students collaborate to design and build a capstone project, for example, a programmable robot, electric motor or multimeter.
Industrial Design
With a focus on drafting, design and structural engineering, students use software (Trimble Sketch-Up), woodworking tools, and a range of finishing materials and techniques to build and test a basewood bridge and solid-fuel rockets.

Computer Programming 
Students explore programming methodologies, structures, graphics and user interfaces and use Visual Basic, Flash and JavaScript to create a computer program 
Working in teams, students develop design projects as they learn simulation, optimization, graphical communication and modeling, and explore engineering technologies, disciplines and ethics.  

Architecture & Habitat Design 
Students study design principles and theories, such as how design influences societal shifts, and develop knowledge of materials, drafting tools and digital applications, including AutoCAD LT, to present drawings and design solutions in various formats.
