    Design Engineering 1 (Grade 11/12)
    Design Engineering 1 will expand upon the foundations that are common to all engineering and experimental science disciplines; the strategic identification of a problem, planning and development of a solution and the execution of the plan. The course will ask students to use t heir interdisciplinary knowledge of physics, chemistry and biology. In addition, the course will allow students to acquire skills that will help then identify and define a valid technical problem, thoroughly research the science included, and develop the p lan to engineer a unique solution. Students will also investigate specific materials and components included in their plans for future use in prototypes or models. The course will expect students to select a concentration for further study: Architectural, Civil, Mechanical, or Transportation Engineering.
     
    Design Engineering 2 (Grade 11/12)
    Design Engineering will provide a more specific focus in the chosen are of concentration from Design Engineering 1 while expanding on the planning completed in the previous semester and begin the prototyping and refining stages of the engineering and scientific processes. The course will ask students to create models of the designed solutions, experimentally test their effectiveness, analyze the data from the tests, and make revisions to the solution.
     
    Design Engineering 3 (Grade 11/12)
    Design Engineering 3 will be the culmination of the engineering and scientific process es in each of the concentrations. The course will afford students the opportunity to finalize designs and construct a final product or model of the planned solution.
     
    Robotics 1 (Grade 11/12)
    Robotics 1 will introduce students to the evolution and basic science and engineering foundations of robotics. Students will explore the mechanical, automation, and computer control systems used in basic robotics. Additionally, students will be introduced to the energy transfers that lead to the proper function of the robotic system.
     
    Robotics 2 (Grade 11/12)
    Robotics 2 builds on the knowledge from Robotics to include the development of a robot that can complete more complex tasks such as increasing robot mobility and implementing manipulation equipment to have the robot interact with the environment.
     
    Robotics 3 (Grade 11/12)
    Robotics 3 probes students to further explore the limits of robotics. Students will be asked to develop robotic systems that interact with their environment at levels of autonomy beyond basic response to human command.
     
    Forensic Science 1 (Grade 11/12)
    Forensic Science 1 will introduce students to the legal process, proper isolation and documentation of a crime scene. Students will also be introduced to the basics of collection, storage and analysis of physical evidence such as but not limited to fingerprinting, fiber analysis and blood residue that may be left at a crime scene. 
     
    Forensic Science 2 (Grade 11/12)
    Forensic Science 2 builds upon the basic evidence collection and analysis skills from Forensic Science 1 to explore the evidence that can be provided by the human body. This will include an overview of serology, toxicology, and entomology.
     
    Forensic Science 3 (Grade 11/12)
    Forensic Science 3 further uses the evidence collection and analysis skills developed in Forensic Science 2 in order to introduce higher - level topics such as handwriting analysis, ballistics, arson, and criminal psychology.
