Design & Drawing for Production - full year
Drawing for Production is a full year course that will introduce the
students to basic technical drawing skills and techniques. These drawing
skills are necessary in the engineering, production and design fields.
Since computers are used today in nearly every phase of engineering,
science, business and technology, the material taught in this course
will be augmented with basic activities In CAD (Computer Aided Design).
Problem solving assignments will be both drawn and built in class.
Computer Graphics and Web Design - half year
course provides students with the opportunity to integrate visual art
concepts and technology. Students will use current computer software
found in the Design, Publishing, Graphics Arts, and Web Design world.
They will also be exposed to the basic concepts design in the areas of
graphics, advising, package and web.
Video Communications - half year
course requires students to come prepared with ideas to be presented
visually. Communications through the video media is the main thrust of
this course. A study of current trends, new consumer products, and
career opportunities in the communication field is required. Students
will be expected to view and analyze various films shown in class
AP Principles Computer Science- full year
AP Computer Science Principles course is designed to be equivalent to a
first- semester introductory college computing course. In this course,
students will develop computational thinking skills vital for success
across all disciplines, such as using computational tools to analyze and
study data and working with large data sets to analyze, visualize, and
draw conclusions from trends.
World of Technology- full year
course will help provide students the opportunity to become engaged in
critical thinking as they design and develop solutions to real world
problems. Students will learn how to code using the program KidOYO and
become acquainted with Microsoft office and Google drive. 3D design and
printing will also be incorporated in the course.
VEX Robotics- halfyear
During this course, students will learn key STEM principles, and
robotics concepts. At the culmination of this class, they will compete
head-to-head against their peers in the classroom, or on the world stage
in the VEX Robotics Competition, the largest and fastest growing
international robotics competition for middle and high school students.
