Career and Tech

This course is designed to promote critical thinking and problem solving skills using hands-on applications.  Students also will work collaboratively to design and build a variety of projects.  Students learn to use precise measurements to create technical drawings from orthgraphic and isometric perspectives.  They will also design, build, and test a trebuchet working in teams.  Students use their drawing background and their ability to measure when they create a bandsaw box made from wood, which is taken home upon completion.  Students also learn about the history of manufacturing and manufacturing processes utilized to create goods.
