Students will explore and compare engineered systems and processes in the world around them. They will sketch and build models to help them understand and communicate. Each week, students will learn new sketching and visual communication techniques that they will use to visually explain how engineered systems or processes work. Students will also maintain a sketchbook to practice new sketching techniques. After being exposed to some basic engineering principles students will further investigate specific engineered systems through sketching, research, disassembly, and building. They will communicate their findings visually.
