Engineering is simply the application of science and math and experience to produce an object or a process that is useful. Home schoolers especially need to begin to experience their world and ask questions of how things work and then find the answers. The basic objective of engineering is to use scientific methods and principles to produce useful devices and devices that serve all of us. We will learn by doing projects about all different areas of engineering from structural and civil, aeronautical, biomedical and more. Each week we will do an activity, experiment or make a project. We will also have at least two challenge/competitions  to see the skills your student has learned along the way. Come join us!
