Manufacturing

  • SkillsUSAThe manufacturing courses provide students with important knowledge and skills in STEM related fields. Students also learn work-related skills such as teamwork, leadership, decision making, and problem-solving, and the application of the design process. Students enrolled in these courses also have the opportunity to participate in either the SkillsUSA and STEM student leadership organizations. These organizations encourage leadership development; social awareness; and responsibility to school, family, and the community.

    Students may also participate in competitions that enhance work-related and collaborative skills.

    Prerequisite:  Manufacturing Design 1
    Grade Level: 10—12
    College Credit:  No
    Certification:  Precision Exam—CAD Mechanical Design I; Core +

    Manufacturing Design 2 will continue to build on CAD design skills and how this knowledge is used in creating the fast moving visual and mechanical world we live in. Precision measurement and application make a big difference in how the pieces fit together. Learn how to use tools such as dial calipers measure needed for the design and creation of various projects.

    APPLIED PHYSICS—MANUFACTURING
    Course Code:  BUS542
    One Semester:  0.5 credit
    Credit for Graduation:  Lab Science, CTE or Elective
    Prerequisite:  Chemistry and Biology
    Grade Level: 11
    College Credit:  No

    This course will focus on the application of physics and technology in the development of different designs and materials to meet human needs. Topics will include forces, motion, energy transformations and the application of these to improve current technology. This is a possible course to be combined with Physics 1 to complete the required third year of science at the high school.
