Class Description

How did ancient cultures create some of their most amazing inventions with seemingly limited resources? Every week, we will briefly explore an ancient civilization and then put our engineering skills to the test to solve a problem common to that culture. What do you know about Ancient India, China, Mesopotamia or Rome? Can you out-engineer the Vikings, Inuits, Comanche or Greeks? This will be an active, hands-on, problem-solving class. Students will work in groups to design and implement solutions to age-old problems. I will provide plenty of tools and resources, but the solution and creativity must be provided by the students.

 

*No prerequisite of specific ancient civilizations is required.
