Chemistry & Engineering Design: Solving Local and Global Challenges
A-G Subject: Laboratory Science - Chemistry
CTE Sector: Engineering and Architecture
Pathway(s): Engineering Design
Through this course students will examine, explore, and experiment with a variety of Chemistry concepts in order to better understand how such knowledge can be used to engineer tools, products, or systems for using energy to meet human needs--such as water purification, energy needs for a community, and ways to store energy. The culminating project of the course requires students to present a report that includes CAD models or prototypes, bill of materials, and Gantt chart to achieve their selected goal. Students will also present their project to an authentic audience and receive feedback. In order to demonstrate and integrate student learning of both Chemistry and Engineering design, students will be prompted to collect work samples for a portfolio that will also support them with completing their culminating project.
