The East Valley Institute of Technology has partnered with Intel and Arizona State University Polytechnic to offer a unique engineering course to prepare high school students for success in a two- or four-year college engineering program. No other Arizona high school offers the Future Engineers program, which is based on a state-of-the-art curriculum developed by Southern Methodist University in Texas.

Have you ever wondered why hurricanes always rotate in the same direction, how laptop computers can be made smaller and smaller every year, or why AM radio stations tune in better during the day? Are you ready to develop your mind to think, analyze, discover and create in ways you’ve never done before? Are you ready to be part of a future that creates innovations and solutions to make the world a better place?

Then the Future Engineers program at EVIT may be for you!

This exciting class leads students through the exploration of topics such as thermodynamics, robotics, electricity, chemistry, solar power, biomechanics, environmental engineering and much more. Up to 50 percent of the course time is dedicated to hands-on engineering projects and experiments at ASU Polytechnic – with the opportunity to earn college credit. You may even assist with The Great Globe project housed at EVIT in which scientist Bryan Beaulieu is leading a team of engineers – and children from across the United States – in building a 42-story replica of the Earth as an educational tourist attraction.

Future Engineers is for high school students who are strong in math or science, who have completed Algebra II, and who want to follow engineering as a career path. It will be offered at the EVIT East Campus, 6625 S. Power Road, Mesa. For more information or to sign up, call Terri Pearson at (480) 308-4642.
