ENGN covered engineering drawings, their importance in the industry, and some common aspects and examples of professional engineering drawings. Then they experimented creating unique LEGO designs within a limited time period. Once students were done, they used the integral tools in Tinkercad needed to recreate their LEGO designs in a digital 3-D workspace.

ENGN students learned the practicality of computer science and programming through an understanding of algorithms. They then used this understanding to learn one of the industry standard coding languages: Python. In Python the students learned how to translate their ideas from paper to computer screen.

Lastly, ENGN students tried their hand at soldering: an important process required to create electrical components. The students learned what soldering was, why it is an important tool for electrical engineers, and left the activity with handmade flashlights using the skills they learned.
