Hi, Howard,

Your idea sounds interesting.  However, without either geometry or trig most
engineering problems are fairly trivial.  Have you thought of doing some
number theory or pattern building.  Why not do some Algebra II topics?  Have
you worked on sequences and finite differences?  Have you considered
coordinate geometry?  Do your students use a graphing calculator?  Do they
know any programming?

These are only ideas.  I hope you get more.
