STEM Design and Engineering


    Instructors:  Sean Merklin & Samuel Schubert

    The Design & Engineering Program at BHS consists of three courses with the option of a fourth course.

    Students start with Engineering Tools and Philosophy.  Students are introduced to skills related to digital design, precision manufacturing, and physical computing.  This course offers a series of hands-on-minds-on design challenges.

    Product Design and Development presents more complicated projects that begin to build students’ engineering habits. It focuses on design with humans in mind and encourages students to think about the user as part of the design process. 

    Engineering Team Practicum uses work-based learning by connecting students to real world clients. For students seriously considering a degree in Engineering, AP Physics C-Mechanics is offered in an optional fourth year. It takes an engineering project-based approach to physics and offers the possibility of earning college credit.
