Lathrop Engineering

The Lathrop Engineering Program provides a wide range of engineering electives for high school students at Lathrop in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Our program traditionally starts with either the Engineering & Robotics course or the Introduction to Engineering & Design course.  We then offer specialization courses in Digital Electronics, Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering & Architecture, as well as AP Computer Science.  All of this culminates in the Senior Engineering, Design, and Development course.

Students at Lathrop can take as many of these courses as their interests and schedules allow. Students who make it all the way through the Senior EDD course can compete for the annual Ehnert Prize for Excellence in Engineering. These students also graduate with Lathrop’s Engineering Academy Endorsement.

If you have questions about Lathrop’s Engineering program or would like to ask questions about our curriculum, projects, or organization, then please do not hesitate to contact the teacher, Mr. Benshoof.
