Canyon Ridge High School

Twin Falls High School

Intro to Engineering Design I

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12
C

Introduction to Engineering Design I (IED) is a high school level STEM class. Students will complete activities and coursework to help them learn the basics to becoming an Engineer (the E in STEM). The class is designed for students to complete hands-on, minds-on activities while preparing them to set a path to a high paying STEM career. It is the first of a two semester class designed for the first year high school STEM student.

Intro to Engineering Design II

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12

C

Intro to Engineering Design I

Introduction to Engineering Design II (IED) is the second semester of the beginning high school STEM class. Students continue to complete hands-on, minds-on activities while learning how to use a professional design program to develop products. Students will complete two major projects and use power tools and 3D printers to complete them. Students completing this class will be prepared to continue their quest for a high paying STEM career.

Introduction to Drafting and CADD

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12

E

Intro to Engineering Design I

Mechanical Drafting: This is a one semester class where students can learn about the world of technical drawings. Technical drawings are used for building everything from tools to bridges and buildings of all sizes. A major part of this class is the introduction to CADD – Computer Aided Drafting and Design. Students will have the opportunity to learn how to use AutoCAD, a professional grade technical design program while working with different types of drawings.

Computer Integrated Manufacturing

2 – CRHS – 10/11/12
E – TCC (CSI)
C or higher in Geometry or concurrent enrollment

This class is similar to Precision Machining / Automated Manufacturing I EXCEPT the student is required to be enrolled in Geometry or passed Geometry with a C or Better. More emphasis will be placed on the drafting and technical aspects of the course that will prepare students for engineering related curriculum. This class is designed to better prepare students for future careers in Engineering, Manufacturing, and Machining related fields.

Principles of Engineering I

1 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

Intro to Engineering Design I

Principles of Engineering I (POE) is the second year in a student’s quest to be better prepared for an exciting career in STEM. Students will learn about how the world works around them while completing activities using VEX robotics hardware and industry leading software. Challenging hands-on, minds-on activities drive the course and help students prepare for high paying STEM careers. After completing this semester class, the students will be ready to jump into robotics and coding in the second semester.

Principles of Engineering II

2 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

Principles of Engineering I

Principles of Engineering II (POE) is the second semester of a fast paced STEM class. This is where students break out the robotics equipment and start assembling. Coding is an important part of STEM and students will learn to program their robots to complete tasks and compete against others. The skills learned through hands-on, minds-on activities in this class will prepare students for high paying STEM jobs and careers.

Civil Engineering and Architecture I

1 – CRHS – 11/12

C

Principles of Engineering I or Physics and Advanced Math with Teacher approval

Students will be introduced to Architecture and Civil Engineering. Students will learn about residential and commercial projects and design using an industry standard design software for buildings. This class is designed to assist students to prepare for careers in all aspects of engineering, construction, and architecture.

Civil Engineering and Architecture II

1 – CRHS – 11/12
C
Civil Engineering and Architecture I

This class will be a continuation of the first semester class and will concentrate on commercial building systems. These systems will structure themselves, services and utilities, site considerations, and a commercial design problem. Students will continue to use the Activity-Project-Problem-Based (APB) method of learning through the Project Lead the Way curriculum.

Engineering Design and Development I

1 – CRHS – 12
E – TCC (CSI)
Students must have completed two years of (PLTW) engineering classes

This is a CAPSTONE class for students who have completed at least two full years of previous engineering classes (preferably Project Lead the Way). Students in this class will concentrate on developing products to solve problems they have identified in their community. Students will spend most of their time designing and constructing products.

Engineering Design and Development II

1 – CRHS – 12
E – TCC (CSI)
Engineering Design and Development I

This is second semester of the CAPSTONE class. The students in this class will be continuing their work from the first semester class.
