Satisfies Fine Art Requirement

Available to students in grades 9-12

Prerequisite: Minimum score of 90% on Safety Exam

This course is an introduction to basic welding skills and metal working techniques used in the exploration of metal sculpture. This course covers instruction in safety procedures, history of welding, identification of metals, and the hot and cold working of steel. Students will work with shielded metal arc welding, oxyacetylene techniques, plasma arc cutting, weld design and finishing techniques. Technical skills will be emphasized through hands on instruction and practice. There will be opportunity for creative expression and practical application.
This course is designed to improve student’s knowledge in CAD in order to produce more sophisticated computer graphics. Successful students will gain an in-depth knowledge of drafting fundamentals and 3-D and solid modeling concepts. CNC machining will be introduced at this level.
This course is the study of communications using computer graphics. It is designed to acquaint students with typical computer - aided - design fundamental s. Successful students will learn basic commands and how to use these commands to produce manufacturing and engineering drawings and other useful graphic

This is a lab based course that uses a hands - on approach to introduce the basic concepts of robotics. Students will focus on the design, construction and programming of autonomous mobile robots using the VEX Robotic Design System. We will work in groups using previous knowledge in STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics while using the Design Process to solve problems, These problems are directly related to technology and will involve testing increasingly more complex mobile robots culminating in an end-of-year robot competition.
