Technology Education

Engineering & Design - Levels 1- 4 🔑
Grade Level 9-12
5 Credits
This course is designed to expand the interested student’s knowledge of architecture and engineering concepts. Students will use the latest architectural and mechanical software available, as well as the most up-to-date computerized numerical control process (C.N.C). Floor plans, model building, and three-dimensional drawing are all pivotal aspects in the field of architecture, and in turn, students will frequently be presented with the opportunity to practice such skills. Intriguing real-world problem solving activities are frequented where students are encouraged to utilize their creative problem solving skills to develop a solution to an engineering challenge. When appropriate, guest lecturers and field trips are identified to support and supplement the achievement of course objectives.


Robotics 🔑
Grade Level 9-12
Co/Prerequisite: College Prep Algebra 1
5 Credits

This introductory Robotics course uses a hands-on approach to introduce fundamental concepts in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science. Students will explore basic electronics and design and build robots. This is a project-based environment that requires students to build prototypes or use simulation software to test designs.  The course will include the concepts of coordinate transformations, sensors, path planning, kinematics, feedback and feedforward control. Students develop critical thinking and communication skills by analyzing and presenting results.
