In this 7th-8th Grade unit, students will learn about perimenter, area and volume mathematically speaking and formulate a 2-D drawing to take into the Autodesk Inventor lab. In the Inventor lab, they will learn basic as well as more advanced features to turn their created 2-D drawings into 3-D created masterpieces where they will then learn the basics of problem-solving as well as the various disciplines of engineering, while comparing and contrasting between the different building structures in their history lessons.

In addition to the CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in Math and History that supplement the primary core area of study.

The structure of this unit and the materials contained within it were created by Leslie Wasley(CTE), Carmen Wright (Math), and Naqiba Gregory (History) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Specialist Mina Greas.
