A-G Subject: Laboratory Science
CTE Sector: Engineering and Architecture
Pathway: Engineering Technology
In Physics and Engineering: Motion by Design students apply principles of physics and engineering to an iterative cycle of product design. In this yearlong, integrated, college preparatory course, students will develop an understanding of fundamental physics concepts in kinematics, mechanics, mechanical and electromagnetic waves, and electricity/electromagnetism while exploring robotics, computer programming, computer aided design (CAD) and rapid product development. The course culminates with competition-ready, semi-autonomous devices presented as marketable products designed to serve a specific purpose in the student’s local community. By successfully completing the course, students will be prepared for success in college science and engineering as well as in high demand careers like automation and advanced manufacturing.
