Cardboard boat racesStudents will be learning the fundamentals of Solidworks 2014 from which they will complete various mechanical models.

RocketsThroughout this course, students will eventually 3D print a CO2 car, a rocket, and build a cardboard boat.  All these will be designed on Solidworks.

CO2 CarsThese items will be used to compete against other high schools inMay when WSU hosts their annual engineering competitions.  Students always enjoy these events.
