Digital signal processing concepts have been successfully taught in the lower division for the past ten years and now have been introduced into an engineering course designed for juniors and seniors in high school. This hands-on curriculum allows students to do real time audio, video, and communication projects using a board similar to a Texas Instruments DSK and a block diagram based development tool. The infinity curriculum, supported with a text book using precalculus mathematics, allows students to gain experience with basic concepts of DSP that they will study later with more rigor if they choose to major in engineering. The course has been adopted by over eighty high schools and has been taught in some high schools for three years.
