Introduction to Engineering Thinking

Knowles Science Teaching Foundation via Open Education by Blackboard

This course may be unavailable.


Being able to think like an engineer is a skill that will help you in any science or math class or career. What makes engineering thinking important and useful is its tinkering approach to problem solving. The same way of thinking that helps an engineer figure out where to put the speaker on a cell phone, can be used to figure out why the toilet isn't working, or how to solve a math problem. Students successful in this class will have the tools to become a maker, an important step on the road to engineering.
