Weber Innovation — An Early-College High School

Principles Of Engineering (POE)  

POE is a building and investigating class! From bridges to robots, this class has it all! Students explore a broad range of engineering, physics and math topics. These encompass mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, energy, automation of devices, and ballistics.

Physics and math are applied in practice and through hands-on projects. Documentation of work and communication of solutions through collaboration, teamwork and presentation are essential elements of the class.

POE is a foundation course recommended for future PLTW courses. Class is taught at the introductory college level, and students may elect to receive concurrent enrollment credit.
