The importance of mathematics and science education in today's modern, technology-driven society cannot be understated. This paper describes the history of and ongoing efforts in curricular and educational technology development for the infinity project, a joint effort between educators, administrators, and industry leaders to establish an engineering curriculum at the high school level. Several issues are considered, including the choice and design of the technology platform used in the curriculum, the curricular and technology development timeline, and the design examples chosen to illuminate important engineering concepts within the curriculum. We also provide a list of key best practices and challenges in developing novel pre-college engineering curricula for future engineers.
