integrated STEM Engineering Education Courses
TEGR 528 (EDUC 327) Engineering in the P-12 Classroom
Summer 2015 - EGED 612 Digital Electronics and Computing Systems
(3 graduate credits) This course explores the fundamentals principles that have enabled the "digital computing revolution" in communications, computing, entertainment, and monitoring systems. Educators will learn about Binary number system, Boolean logic, Design of digital systems, the architecture of a microprocessor, interfacing it with external circuitry/sensors and communicating with the processor through a computer programming language. Educators will complete a course project that will be due the first week of August.
Summer 2015 - EGED 614 Statics, Materials and Structures
(3 graduate credits) Introduction to statics, strength of materials and structures. Topics include Newton’s Laws, equilibrium equations, analysis of determinate systems, load tracing, stress, strain, deformation, cross-sectional properties, shear and bending moments, axial member analysis and structural systems behavior. Each unit includes historic and critical issue connections. Emphasis is placed on how the material is used in the built environment and is relevant to P-12 education settings. Instructor: Dr. Katherine Acton
EGED 530 (ENGR 130) Fundamentals of Engineering
(3 graduate credits; 4 undergraduate credit) 4 weekends. Dates TBD ; Fri 4:30-8:30, Sat 8:30-3:30 This practical course provides a broad STEM engineering experience and includes the following topics: electronics, machine design, manufacturing engineering, computer programming, thermodynamics, statics, fluids and mechanics of materials. The class will include hands-on activities, links to academic standards (including Next Generation Science Standards) and discussion of the current/historical importance of the topics.
