Manufacturing Engineering (8)
Be a manufacturing engineer while designing, planning and building real world products. This is a hands-on course in the application of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) principles. Students will work with various materials and many different processes that are in use in industry today. The course will cover various manufacturing systems, power machines, hand tools, and safety.
This semester course is designed to give the student experience and confidence in the area of beginning woodworking. Power machine operation and safety are stressed throughout the course. Students will learn how to read and complete working drawings, plans of procedure and bills of materials. Students construct various projects with the use of hand tools and wood working machines. Throughout the course career possibilities will be discussed.
This semester course is designed for 9th-grade students who are interested in obtaining basic knowledge about both hot and cold metals. During this course, students will study safety procedures, metal classification, hand and power tools, fasteners, sheet metal, hot metal and other areas associated with metals. A variety of projects will be constructed in both hot and cold metals.
Design, Architecture & Engineering (9)
Use architectural principles to design and build a model house, use engineering principles to design and build structural projects. This is a hands-on course in the application of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) principles. Engineering principles will be applied while students are using a problem-solving model both individually and in groups to find solutions to various technical problems. Safety and use of tools, machines and materials will be covered as needed in finding solutions and developing projects.
