Summer Explorations in Engineering Design (S.E.E.D.) with Applied Mathematics...

This summer, students learned what it takes to invent, design products, research and cooperate with one another in teams using math to problem solve. These young SEEDS thoughtfully carried out the processes of engineering design using math standards in both Algebra and Geometry. Exploring math in projects gives students another way to look at their work and solve problems to benefit communities. Once the projects were complete, they got a surprise visit by a couple of SDSU students one in Engineering (Ty) and the other in Economics

(Christian) to motivate them to complete their projects with precision and creativity. The SEED students all did a great job presenting their final projects in the media lab in the library at San Diego State University.

Final Touches

March 15, 2017

This team puts some finishing touches on their projects. Math looks right. Design looks right. Time to check spelling before they present and turn it in for grading. This team never knew that learning math and applying could be so fun!
