COMPUTER AIDED DRAFTING AND DESIGN (CADD)

Picture1.png

   In Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) students are introduced to the Engineering Design process and fundamental drafting practices.

   Students in this class will learn 2D Mechanical and Architectural drafting. From model creation to documentation.

   This class is recommended for all students as the introduction class to either the Engineering Design or the Engineering Technology pathway.

PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING A

In Principles of Engineering A students learn how to successfully turn ideas on paper into physical functional products.

  Students use the Engineering Design process to ideate, prototype , and evaluate their results and make necessary adjustments.

  Students learn to use many types of prototyping  equipment such as  Laser cutters, 3D printers,  power tools, wood shop equipment and other various tools needed to build finished prototypes.

  Students who  like to turn ideas into physical objects will enjoy this class. Student who enjoy a prototyping environment should sign up for Principles of Engineering A.

PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING B

In Principles of Engineering B students build on their skills learned in Principles of Engineering A as well as Robotics.

Students in this class build full size projects with an emphasis in Green technology the first term. Some projects have included an electric go-kart as well as a solar powered boat built for competition.

 

In the second term of the class students have the opportunity to pick their own project utilizing the equipment in the shop to produce their desired project.

ROBOTICS

In Robotics students are introduced to the Robotics field. Students in this course will build a rover, factory type arm, and an animatronic robot.

  Students will learn how to program these robots using both RobotC language commonly found in VEX robotics as well as Arduino C/C++ language.  

  Students are given challenges to complete by building a robot of their own design.

  Students in this class also have the opportunity to compete against other high schools on our after school robotics team.
