    Weekly Class Objectives: 

    STEM 1: Principles of Applied Engineering /Concepts of Engineering and Tech
    Students are testing the performance of the CO2 cars with a series of trials. Students will calculate the velocity and acceleration for their vehicle and will share the information on their website. 
    Students will create a video commercial and include all updated CAD documents on their created websites.
     
    STEM: Scientific Research and Design
    Students are looking at characteristics of their engineering notebook for rocketry and incorporating components and data as needed. Students will begin rocket launches and data collection this week. 

    STEM: Engineering Design and Problem Solving

    Students will be working on designing safe building in a small scale civil engineering project. Students will be collecting data with earthquake shaker boards and analyzing information about waves and frequencies.  

    STEM: Engineering Design and Presentation
    Students will work on the building of their ESCAPE ROOM, and their environmental props and descriptions that belong in rainforests. 
     
    Computer Science 1: 
    Students will be working through basics of programming and programming labs in chapter 1 and chapter 2 of their JAVA text. 
     
     
    Computer Science 2:
    Students will be working through chapter 1 and chapter 2 of the AP JAVA text as a review of concepts.
