Principles of Design is a STEM course that represents four specific discipline elements — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. The Principles of 3D class will integrate the four disciplines into a single learning environment based on real world applications. Students will participate in an action-oriented classroom which will feature illustrated lecture, discussion, demonstration, hands-on activities and presentations, and project presentations. The emphasis will be on student project research and design.

What is a Makerspace?
The makerspace is a collaborative work area set up in the Student Center for students to make, learn, explore and share using technology they may otherwise not have the opportunity to access.

The goal of our senior capstone project is for students to engage in a rigorous program of study within personal interest areas. Our program is designed to encourage independent and experiential learning by asking our high school seniors to link their studies with real-world application and experiences inside and outside of the classroom. This class will engage students in cycles of service learning and reflection within respective fields of interest, concluding with the development of a capstone project which will be defended to a committee of peers, community members, and professionals.
