    Introduction to Technical Design

    This is a semester (18 week) course.  This class will be based on instructing students in basic technical design.  Students will learn how to use traditional drafting equipment as well as use AutoCAD to create drawings on the computer.  We will learn about measurement, basic drawing geometry and techniques, sketching, multiview drawing, dimensioning, and design.  Much of the class will be hands on; some of the class time will be instructional. Demonstrations will be given on all equipment and software before student use.  Students will also create a laser engraved project and a 3D printed project.  Those wishing to take advanced technical design courses in the future must successfully complete this class first.  Advanced courses include Architectural Design, Engineering Design, and Digital Fabrication.

    Architectural Design

    This is a year long class.  Architecture is about planning, designing, and constructing buildings. Students explore form, space, and ambience that reflect both function and aesthetics using powerful software tools. They construct drawings to technical specifications and model ideas in three dimensions. This course offers students an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of architectural design. Students develop and use a variety of skills including assessing, organizing, problem solving, and analyzing in the application of drafting techniques. Students engage in a variety of learning activities including lecture and note taking, research, individual projects, demonstrations, and performance tasks. This course provides experience in area planning, basic architectural plans, technical details, architectural support services, and creative ideas on basic principles and techniques of mechanical drawing. Students are assessed by observing and measuring performance on tests, quizzes, assigned tasks and projects and by the quality of work produced.

    Engineering Design

    This year long class is oriented for future engineers. Students explore all facets of what it takes to get ideas produced. They draw designs on the board and on the computer in three dimensions. They discover for themselves how technology can take a project from idea to digital prototyping. Students refine designs with stress tests, fluid dynamic analysis, and motion studies.  This course offers students an opportunity to learn engineering concepts. Current industry standards are also applied. Students develop and use a variety of skills including assessing, organizing, problem solving, and analyzing in the application of drafting and design techniques. Students engage in a variety of learning activities including lecture and note taking, research, individual projects, demonstrations, and performance tasks. Students are assessed by observation, performance on tests, quizzes, assigned tasks and projects and by the quality of work produced.
