Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing - Introduction to building engineering, examples of MEP components/shstems and hands-on electrical projects - tie in STEM with MEP system calculations/science.
Session V - Options:
3D modeling/sketching/energy modeling programs (different programs, utilize 1-3 designs from Session I to show examples), career options, schooling/licensing requirements, tie in STEM with computer programs and classes offered in high school.
