SystemsGo is for high school students grades 9-12
SystemsGo offers a four-year, sequenced curriculum that fulfills the STEM endorsement for Texas high schools, meeting the 4×4 graduation requirements.
Concepts of Engineering and Technology, Engineering Design and Presentation, Advanced Engineering Design and Presentation, and Engineering Design and Problem Solving are the four CTE funded courses used by SystemsGo for its four-year, sequenced STEM endorsement.
All levels are designed to meet CTE course TEKS objectives, align with SystemsGo’s four-year sequenced STEM endorsement, provide knowledge of the R&D industry and its fundamentals, promote application of students’ R&D knowledge base, and develop R&D work and life skills within the students.
Concepts of Engineering and Technology (CoET)
CoET is a full-year curriculum, The CoET year is designed promote a student’s understanding of innovation, the R&D industry, and work/life skills such as problem-solving, design, development, testing and analysis, leadership, and teamwork.
Engineering Design and Presentation (EDP)
EDP is designed to introduce the student to the field of mechanical drafting. This is an introductive type course that teaches basic mechanical drawing skills and methods. The student will also be introduced to Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) using AutoCad Mechanical.
GRADES 11 & 12
Advanced Engineering Design
Presentation/Scientific Research and Design
The student will learn problem-solving tools found within the four main energy systems: mechanical, fluid, electrical, and thermal. In addition, the student will be introduced to additional life skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, problem-solving, design and development, testing and analysis, documentation, and others.
In the second semester, the students complete a design and development project with two success criteria: rocket on the pad by scheduled date and flight performance that gets a 1.0-lb research package to an altitude of 5,280-ft.
Students continue to learn problem-solving skills, to complete a design and development project with these two success criteria: rocket on the pad by scheduled date and flight performance to achieve transonic velocity while staying under a 13,000-ft ceiling.
