How Laurel Hill Engineers Engage in Hands-on, Real-World Problem Solving
Children are natural-born engineers, fascinated with building and creating objects and exploring their inner workings.
You can build a better mousetrap! At LHS, we’ve incorporated engineering into our curriculum to trail blaze new paths to creative thought, logical thinking and enhanced learning. Engineering challenges encourage our students to apply their science and math knowledge to real-world applications. Science and mathematics achieve dramatic relevancy in student life at Laurel Hill.
Engineering Throughout The Day
Utilizing the Engineering Design Process students pose questions, evaluate ideas, invent and construct, test and retest, improve on original designs, and build new prototypes. Students then collaborate and compare results as they generate possible solutions. And a challenge is practically nonfail!
There are many, many interesting routes to success. Every student solution offers its own benefits prompting new ideas to develop – and the excitement just continues. It’s what makes engineering amazing!
The engineering curriculum at LHS addresses different fields of engineering including Agricultural, Electrical, Mechanical, Transportation, Chemical, and many more. The syllabus also reinforces core science topics in Life, Earth, Space and Physical Science.
Engineering at Laurel Hill is a very focused “E” in STEAM education. Cross-cutting ideas and methods come alive for students and ignite a compelling interest in applied science, math and technology.
