  • Technology Education Courses

    Engineering Design & Architecture 1 Honors (9, 10, 11, 12) 1 credit

    The first in a series of action-oriented, studentcentered courses that provide an introduction to engineering, architecture, and design. Students will use Autodesk software including Auto CAD, Inventor, and Revit throughout the year creating a wide variety of 2-D, 3-D, isometric and orthographic drawings. Students will also use both traditional tools as well as the 3-D printer and Laser Cutter to design and construct prototypes as well as architectural models. This course is perfect for students with an interest in architecture, design, or engineering.

    Engineering Design & Architecture 2 Honors (10, 11, 12) 1 credit

    Students will continue to expand their learning in engineering design and Architecture. Students will be given advance projects to replicate real world engineering and architecture problems using the Engineering Design process. Students will have expanded use of the 3-D printer and Laser Cutter to aid in the creation of their designs and prototypes.
    Prerequisite: Successful completion of EDA 1.

    Engineering Design & Architecture 3 Honors (11, 12) 1 credit

    At this level students are expected to build upon their skills in the fields of engineering and architecture disciplines. Students will been given a real world problems by the instructor and the goal is for the student to come up with a solution to the problem.
    Prerequisite: Successful completion of EDA 2.

    Woodworking & Materials 1 (9, 10, 11, 12) 1 credit

    Neutrally Weighted
    Students learn how to use hand tools, power tools, and stationary machines to safely construct and finish quality projects made of wood, metal and other materials. Product design, assembly, and finishing are covered at progressive levels of complexity and challenge. Students strive to develop a confident, “I can do” attitude while creating projects, learning safety and having fun.

    Woodworking & Materials 2 (10, 11, 12) 1 credit

    Neutrally Weighted
    Students will continue to learn how to use tools and machines to safely construct and finish quality projects made of wood, metal and other materials. Students will integrate the use of the CNC router and Laser Cutter in producing projects. Students strive to develop a confident, “I can do” attitude while creating projects, learning safety and having fun.

    Technology Education Options* (11, 12) variable credit

    Neutrally Weighted
    Students who desire to schedule one of the Technology Education courses described above, but who are unable to accommodate the required class meetings in their schedule, may arrange (with the permission of the Technology Education teacher and their Guidance Counselor) to schedule the course on a partial credit basis. The student must attend regular scheduled meetings of the class in which he/she enrolls; this is not an independent study arrangement. Credit varies depending on the option selected and approved by the Technology Education Department.
    *Since this course is based on availability and room within a student’s schedule, students may only select this course after the school year begins.
