Small Engines :This course covers the operation of small (one or two cylinder) two and four cycle internal combustion engines. We will study and work with appropriate tools, materials and equipment, along with fuel, ignition, mechanical, and lubrication systems related to those engines.
Auto 1: A study of the how and why of the design, construction and operation of automotive units through 50% classroom and 50% lab experience. Also, students will explore other power mechanics systems directly and indirectly related to the automobile. They will have hands on lab setting to put to use information gained in the lecture/demo settings. They will be expected to complete assignments, labs and participate in class.
Auto Upkeep and Home Maintenance: From choosing an insurance policy to performing basic maintenance and repair, Auto Upkeep is the do-it-yourself automotive guide for the driver in you. Auto Upkeep helps you keep safe and your vehicle reliable. Discover how to choose a quality repair facility, buy a car, handle roadside emergencies, diagnose common problems, and communicate effectively with technicians – all while saving money and getting credit.
Wood Technology: In this course, you will learn how to: safely use wood working equipment, use processes and techniques to create wood products. Joinery, finishing, and fastener types will also be explored.
Construction Technology: In this course, students will explore the essential concepts associated with a residential construction project including: blueprint reading, concrete/masonry, framing, roofing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, insulation, drywall, finish carpentry, and interior/exterior finishes. Students will participate in the construction of storage buildings or other projects to apply what is learned.
Welding I: This class will give students an introduction and broad overview of the welding industry and the various types of welding operations that are typically used. Emphasis will be placed on Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) which is the most popular form of electric arc welding.
Principles of Engineering (POE)
Introduction to Engineering Design (IED)
Introduction to Computer Science (ICS)
Beyond learning the fundamentals of programming, in this one semester course - students build computational-thinking skills by applying computer science to collaboration tools, modeling and simulation, and data analysis. In addition, students transfer the understanding of programming gained in App Inventor to text-based programming in Python® and apply their knowledge to create algorithms for games of chance and strategy.
Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles (AP CSP)
AP Computer Science Principles (CSP) is a PLTW course to implement the College Board’s new AP CS Principles framework. Students work in teams to develop computational thinking and solve problems. The course does not aim to teach mastery of a single programming language but aims instead to develop computational thinking, to generate excitement about the field of computing, and to introduce computational tools that foster creativity. THERE WILL BE MATH!
Digital Electronics (DE)
Civil Engineering & Architecture (CEA)
