Sample Schedules

Create a program that fits

Whether you have an hour or an entire week, we offer several sample schedules with popular activities to work within the time you have.

If you know how much time you have, start choosing activities to build your schedule. If you have 1-8 hours, you may choose to focus on activities from one or two modules. If you have nine or more hours, we recommend that you choose at least one activity from each module and end with Operation Design Challenge from the We are Engineers Module. This activity brings together the topics addressed in each module into a final capstone project.
