  • What will students learn in the Engineering Academy this summer?

    Students will develop and practice engineering skills through the creation of virtual 3-D buildings and cities using Minecraft Education, under the guidance of their teachers, and using a district-supplied software program. Students will study unique building designs, energy sources, and sustainable (environmentally-friendly) materials that they will consider in their creation of a 3-D building using these techniques. The software, provided free through the district, will allow students to work both independently and collaboratively as architects.
