Pre-Engineering

Robotics & Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) Classes

ROBOTICS I -

This course is offered to 9th – 12th grade students. This is a one period, one semester class, offered both fall and spring semesters. This course is an introduction to the world of Robotics. Students will learn about tools and basic problem solving as they assemble their robots. They will be introduced to VEX EDR robots and robot programming. Students will learn about designing a robotic arm and utilize STEM principles. Students compete head-to-head in sport like games with their robots.

Robotics2

ROBOTICS II

This course is offered to 9th – 12th grade students. This is a one period, one semester class, offered both fall and spring semesters. This course is a continuation of Robotics I. Search and Rescue is the focus of this course.

 

Robotics1

ROBOTICS III -

This course is offered to 10th – 12th grade students. This is a one period, one semester class, offered both fall and spring semesters. This course is a continuation of Robotics II. Drone Building is the focus in this course. If students continue with additional robotics courses, more advanced robots will be built and modified. We will introduce the Search and Rescue Robots and driving them with video cameras. We will also pursue the Artificial Intelligence aspect of robotics as students assemble and fly racing drones.

For the best results, students should enroll in this course for ONE complete year.

 

COMPUTER ASSISTED DRAFTING (CAD) I -

This course is offered to 9th – 12th grade students. This is a one semester class, offered both fall and spring semesters. This course is the first of a three-part sequence which prepares students for entry-level drafting positions and provides opportunities for entry into college programs in Engineering, Architecture, and related technologies such as 3d Animation. Students develop technical drafting skills using computer-driven drafting programs. Students learn how to read and produce detailed drawings and technical illustrations from the sketches and ideas conceived by design professionals. Students begin drawing in two dimensions, and then go more in-depth with 3d modeling. Students learn how to prepare design drawings useful for any field of design or real-world clients. Students will be introduced to 3d Printing in this course. Programs introduced include Auto CAD, Chief Architect, Inventor, Solid Works, and (as time allows) 3ds Max.

Students may test to obtain a certificate in Auto CAD at the completion of any of one full year in this course.

For the best results, students should enroll in this course for ONE complete year.

 

COMPUTER ASSISTED DRAFTING (CAD) II -

This course is offered to 10th – 12th grade students. This is a one semester class, offered both fall and spring semesters. This course is the second of a three-part sequence to prepare entry-level drafters into the work-force or to provide for opportunities for entry into college programs such as Engineering, Architecture, and any related technologies (such as 3D Printing, 3D Visualization, Animation, Industrial Design). In the CAD II course, students will be doing more complex 3d modeling, reverse-engineering, and work at a higher level of complexity in all programs. As time allows, students may explore Architecture or 3d Animation (making short movies), Part Modeling, Assemblies, Exploded Assemblies, and completed Drawings sheets. Students may create projects for other classes such as Welding or Woodworking or a community project. Students will use Chief Architect, Solid Works, Revit, and 3ds Max. Students will learn more about 3d Printing.

At the end of this course, students will focus on a particular project of their interest.

Students may test to obtain a certificate in Inventor, Revit, Auto CAD, or Solid Works at the completion of two years of this course.

 

COMPUTER ASSISTED DRAFTING (CAD) III -

This course is offered to 11th – 12th grade students. This is a one semester class, offered both fall and spring semesters. This course is the most advanced of the CAD courses.  Students will be putting together all of the design and modeling principles learned in the CAD I and CAD II courses.  Students will be working independently, on a design team, or with other departments in the Carbon County Higher Education Center or local clients who have design needs in the community for a capstone project.  Students will complete a portfolio of their work at the end of the third year.     

For the best results, students should enroll in this course for ONE complete year.
