Worcester Public Schools
This Interdisciplinary Qualifying Project designed a curriculum to expose students to an engineering process, in 7th grade classrooms of Worcester Public Schools. It is set up to mimic the basic curriculum structure at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, culminating in a hands-on project to apply what the students have learned. The engineering challenge is framed in the context of a proposed lunar colony. The curriculum focuses on teaching students about lunar exploration and basic concepts of modern robotics.
