Engineering Application Series (EAS)

The Engineering Application Series (EAS) is a collection of fun, exciting, problem-based learning opportunities. EAS provides students the means to master critical academic, workplace, and life skills while solving real-world challenges.

A team of 4-8 students are presented with a real-world engineering design challenge. The team then organizes and solves the problem by navigating the design loop process using a unique “Challenge Script” and a variety of worksheets.


All presentation media and student handouts, including the Challenge Script, worksheets, and assessment rubrics can be downloaded, edited, and printed using a common word processor.
