Technology Education Course Descriptions
6th, 7th, & 8th Technology
Students will explore the world of technology through the engineering design process. We will cover topics such as energy/power, materials processing, graphic communication, drafting and tool and machine safety. This is a complete hands-on course that offers students the opportunity to be creative and think abstractly.
Design and Drafting for Production
Design and Drafting for Production is a course for students interested in the world of STEAM, with a focus on design and engineering. Students are encouraged to identify problems, experiment through modeling and prototyping, and develop effective solutions in three dimensional forms.
Students will expand their knowledge and experience through various projects, lessons, and vocabulary. Students will be expected to learn about and safely use hand tools, power tools, and woodworking machinery. The projects are designed to give students as much experience as possible by using many different machines and tools. The projects will also cover many aspects of the building and woodworking industries.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have woodworking skills that will be useful in any aspect of the construction industry. Additionally, the student should have a broader understanding of construction processes as well as more in depth problem solving skills.
