Advanced Competitive Science

Advanced Competitive Science (ACS) is a conceptual engineering program in which students explore mechanical and electrical systems through fabrication and assemblies, design processes utilizing 3D modeling tools and control systems incorporating sensor interfacing, data collection, motion control and embedded logic programming. Rather than a traditional information-push class dynamic, ACS provides a learning environment whereby students pull learning elements from various resources and thereby develop advanced problem-solving skills and sub-levels of mastery in formal teachings of science and mathematics. By engaging students in the iterative process of problem formulation, abstraction, analysis, design, prototyping, testing and evaluating, ACS expands student development beyond information concentricity and toward innovation and entrepreneurialism.

Note to other schools and institutions: The ACS Program was developed at BSM by Timothy Jump.
