This EPICS curriculum is designed and developed to assist students and teachers who are limited with the time that they are aloted to design, develop and deliver an EPICS project to a community stakeholder.  The students will be examining the community to determine the best use of time and resources that will not only meet the needs of the stakeholder, but also utilize the engineering design process. The curriculum includes all of the resources needed for students to progress through the design cycle while analizing testing data to deliver a viable project.

Here you will find a pdf version of an overview of the High School aligned EPICS Design Cycle which includes standards, essential questions and resources associated with each lesson. Overview of the High School Condensed Curriculum.
