Engineering Expeditions Updated


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.

Engineering Expedition - Start Here!

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.
