TECHNOLOGY / ENGINEERING

     

This course will emphasize the engineering design process, which involves practical problem solving, research, development and invention. Through hands-on activities, students will design, draw, build, test and redesign. The course will cover Construction Technologies, Energy and Power Technologies (Fluid, Thermal and Electric), Communications and Manufacturing Technologies. Students will also be introduced to concepts in electronics and robotics. Students will learn about CNC machining though the use of the Shopbot and 3D rapid prototyping through the use of the Stratasys 3D printer. Creo Parametric 2.0 CAD software will be used to create 3D solid models and photo-realistic computer renderings. This course prepares students for the MCAS examination in Technology Engineering. Students will create an electronic portfolio of their work.
