• STEM 6

    This is a hands-on inquiry based and project-driven class. Students will learn about the design process and how to utilize it. Students will use the design process to design and build their projects, such as cable cars and a boot for students with walking difficulties. Students also engage in the product improvement challenge. Students will learn the foundations of technical drawings and will learn how to safely choose and operate the correct tool and/or machine for the project at hand. Students will learn to document their projects and solutions in an engineering notebook and produce a presentation for each project.

  • STEM 7

    This is a hands-on inquiry-based and project-driven class. Students will learn about the design process and how to utilize it. Students will use the design process to design and build their projects, such as dragsters and catapults. They also can be involved in fashion design and the off the grid project. Students will learn how to create technical drawings and will learn how to safely choose and operate the correct tool and/or machine for the project at hand. Students will learn to document their projects and solutions in an engineering notebook and produce a presentation for each project. Students will to apply mathematical principles to their design and then use various tools and materials to bring their 3D projects to life. Projects may include but are not limited to CO2 dragster, catapults and puzzle cube project.

  • STEAM Explorations

    Seventh grade students will learn and actively use the Engineering Design Process to bring their designs to life. From fabrication tools to CAD and 3D printing, students are exposed to basic software , tools, and equipment found at the foundation of any CTE STEM pathway. Students will utilize design software (SketchUp), Arduinos, coding, and other tools to manufacture new products. The course will end with students using all course skills to collaboratively create a final project.

  • Tech Design and Engineering

    Eighth grade students will learn in depth about technical sketching and drawing, how to apply mathematical principles to their design, and then use various tools and materials to bring their 3D projects to life. Project may include but are not limited to Underwater ROV (remotely operated vehicle), catapult, fashion design, and 3D Chair and Architectural Design Project.
