Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

This video highlights a middle school engineering and technology course sequence that promotes the engineering design process, systems thinking, prototype testing, data analysis, entrepreneurship, and data-driven decision making. It features the 6th grade Carnival Tycoon curriculum that casts students in the role of carnival game designers, the 7th grade Flight of Fancy curriculum in which students redesign airplanes to be more comfortable, profitable, and environmentally friendly, and the 8th grade Robot Rescue Challenge in which students use 3D modeling software and 3D printing technologies as they design a rescue robot capable of navigating variable terrain. The curriculum is being designed and implemented in a low-income, rural fringe and depressed manufacturing area of Georgia.
