Engineering Expeditions are a series of authentic project learning experiences that energize learners to identify passion projects and inspire them to imagine innovative solutions to real-world issues in partnership with career experts. Learners engage in self-reflection, research, and investigation with the engineering design process, and Future Ready Passports guide them through deep dives into space, artificial intelligence, and eco-tech.
PLANNING TOOLS provides a guide to course implementation, including scope and sequence, lesson plans, and the culminating project overview.
FOR LEARNERS: This resource encourages and supports students on their learning journey by providing opportunities to deepen their knowledge, feed their passion, build their Future Ready skills, and deepen their career identity through NAF's "Take Charge of Your Learning" framework of REFLECT, STRETCH, INNOVATE, and SHOWCASE.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a colonist on Mars? Or, to create the automated car that not only picks the best routes, but can elevate over traffic? How about building a water retension system which preserves senstitive ecosystems during droughts?
You may just have the curiousity, creativty, and initiative to start now with a passion project that could eventually impact those future possibilities.
