Community Partners Visit Engineering Classes

Smackover High School Introduction to Engineering Design students welcomed engineers from Lockheed Martin, Jim Watson and Eric Wheatley, to their classroom on Monday, August 30.

Introduction to Engineering Design is the foundation course of the new engineering program of study at Smackover High School.  Over 35 students are enrolled in the course for the 2016-2017 school year.

Students enrolled in Introduction to Engineer Design dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work.
