Engineering: Design and Modeling (6th Grade Encore)
The Design and Modeling course exposes learners to solid modeling as a fundamental component of the Engineering Design Process. Learners will learn and utilize sketching techniques, descriptive geometry as a component of design, measurement and computer modeling. Using design briefs or abstracts, students create models and document their experiences while solving problems.
Projects: Computer aided drawing designs which include 3D drawings, working drawings and assembly drawings; Projects may include: Light Box, Air Powered Dragster, balsa wood structures and Gumball Machine
Engineering: Some Assembly Required (7th Grade Elective)
This course provides learners the opportunity to apply multiple technologies in the areas of transportation. Learners will apply the design process to solve technical challenges and have the opportunity to use several types of hand tools and machines to complete their projects. Projects may include: Kites, hot air balloons, rockets, planes, CO2 cars, gear cars and hovercrafts.
Engineering: STEM (8th Grade Elective)
This hands on course provides students with the opportunity to explore robotics, woodworking, plastics and more. This course will cover four areas of technology which include construction, communication, manufacturing and transportation. Students will experience the entire engineering process from design to fabrication
