Courses

Exploring Technology

    Exploring Technology is a one year course taught by two teachers.   The two teachers are to guide students through several two week learning modules.   Students will be asked to learn, think, work together, and make different applications. The modules that could be covered are: communication skills, electricity, drafting, flight, computer applications, laser and light ,robotics, gas cutting, production, construction, plastics, aerospace, gas welding, mug welding,careers,structures,CO2 cars and computer numerically controlled machines.

Applied Technology

    Applied Technology follows that same format as Exploring Technology except the learning modules are four weeks in length. The modules are the same as the ones in exploring technology. Modules included are drafting, printing, woodworking, plastics, metals, welding, computer applications, engineering structures, small gas engines, performance vehicles, electronics, applied physics, and computer controlled machines.

Production I

    Production I is a one year course with emphasis on producing a product to meet a specific need. Students will construct a group project to learn team work, leadership, production techniques, time management, goal setting, computer skills, and proper use of resources. This project will be used as a fund-raiser for a person in need. In addition, students will be involved in individual projects, computer numerical control, and mass production.

Production II

Production II will further develop the students ability to produce products to meet a specific needs. Students will select individual projects which will help them develop the knowledge and skills need to produce products. Emphasis will be placed on time management, goal setting, meeting time schedules, safety, using computer hardware and software and producing a product with a computer numerically controlled machine. Other production techniques will be discussed.

Production III

Production III is designed for senior students wanting advanced study in the production technology area. These students will be responsible for completing an individual project, designing and coordinating a mass production project, and completing an advanced project on the computer numerically controlled machine.

Visual Communications I

This course is divided into four sections: Architectural Drafting, Mechanical Drafting, Graphic Arts and Problem Solving. In the Architectural Drafting section will place emphasis on a house the students will design. In Mechanical Drafting section the students will be introduced to orthographic projection and pictorial drawings. In the Graphic Arts section, emphasis will be placed on design, layout, camera and darkroom operations, stripping, playmaking and offset presswork. In the Problem Solving area, the students will be given different problems to come up with a solution.

Visual Communication II

Visual Communication II is a combinations of Drafting, Graphic Arts and Problem Solving. In the Drafting section, the student will have an option of advanced mechanical or architectural drafting. In Mechanical Drafting, emphasis will be placed on tool and machine design. In Architectural Drafting, emphasis is placed on both commercial and residential design. In the Graphic Arts section, the students will develop a working knowledge of the offset processes to produce an attractive printed piece. In the Problem Solving section, the students will be given different problems to solve.

Visual Communications III

This course is mainly for students who are interested in Drafting, Graphic Arts or related professions. This course is an in-depth study of Drafting or Graphic Arts, whichever the student chooses.

Visual Communications IV

The student will have the option of Architectural Drafting, Mechanical Drafting, or Graphic Arts. The student will select the area of his interest and do the required work in that area.
