Capstone in Engineering

  • Course Syllabus

    While it is not mandatory, students may wish to bring in a dedicated mouse to use with the computers and/or their Chromebook, as well as a pair of earphones/earbuds.

    In addition, it would be beneficial to have a device capable of running the following apps:

      • Google drive
      • Google docs
      • Google slides
      • Google sheets
      • Gmail
      • Video to .gif converter


    The purpose of the Capstone in Technology, Design & Engineering is to provide an in-depth design experience taking an idea from conception through the development and construction of a solution to a problem in the form of a product, model or prototype. In this course, students will spend the better part of the year engaged in the Engineering Design process to develop a solution to a unique problem with a Design, Technological and/or Engineering focus. The students should be passionate about pursuing a career and/or higher education associated within the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields and/or Entrepreneurialism. Projects may take the form of a physical or web-based product or system (can be a new invention or an innovation/personalization of an existing technology) which they will develop, document and present during the spring. The course will focus on applying and documenting the engineering design process through the use of engineering logs, portfolios, digital journals, technical reports, and presentations.
