STEM Essentials

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12
E (CSI, TCC available)

STEM Essentials is a 1 semester class for students to jump into hands-on, minds-on activities that will establish the core skills needed for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers. Students will design with computer based programs and develop digital creations in CADD for product modeling and testing. They will then investigate coding for robotics and CNC machining. This class will help ensure success in future Automated Manufacturing and Engineering classes.

STEM Essentials Engineering I

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12

C

STEM Essentials

This class is recommended as second semester class for students completing STEM Essentials.  Students will continue their STEM training with activities in engineering design.  Imitating good engineering practices will help students achieve their goals in Project Based Learning.  Students will use Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to find creative solutions as they design, build, test and present ideas. Successful completion of the course will include creating an automated mechanical device to show off their new skills.

STEM Engineering IIA

1 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

STEM Engineering I

STEM Engineering IIA is a hands-on, minds-on exploratory engineering class where students learn by doing. Students will complete activities with mechanism, energy, materials and structures. An example of these activities is using a Hydrogen Fuel Cell to store energy to power a device. These activities use VEX Robotics hardware and industry leading software for testing and collecting information. Students will be prepared to jump into robotics and coding in the second semester. This class will help students pursue a career in high paying STEM occupation.

STEM Engineering IIB

2 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

Principles of Engineering IIA

STEM Engineering IIB 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.

Computer Integrated Manufacturing

2 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

2 years of Engineering classes, 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.

Intro to Engineering Design I

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12

E

Intro to Engineering I is the first semester of a year-long class where students learn about engineering through hands-on and minds-on activities and projects.  This is a hands-on class where students work in teams to solve problems through computer design, constructing, and testing projects.  This is a participation class where students apply the knowledge and skills they are gaining to solve life-like engineering/design problems.

Intro to Engineering Design II

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12

C

Intro to Engineering Design I

Intro to Engineering II is the second semester of a year-long class where students continue to design and prototype ideas to solve fun problems.  Students in this class work in teams to design items, construct and test those items, and make improvements on them to solve life-like engineering/design problems.  Engineering classes will help students understand how the world works around them.

Principles of Engineering I

1 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

Intro to Engineering Design II

This is a first semester class of a year-long class that helps students learn about mechanisms, energy, electronics, structures and materials.  Students use VEX metal construction pieces for a hands-on experience to understand the world around us.  This class will prepare students for the exciting robotic challenges they will work on in second semester.

Principles of Engineering II

1 – CRHS – 10/11/12

E

Principles of Engineering Design I

This is second semester of a year-long class where students will learn more about the world around them through VEX robotics.  Students will learn how to build, operate, and program autonomous robots.  Students completing this class have a better understanding about design and its effects on how the man-made world works.

Civil Engineering and Architecture I

1 – CRHS – 11/12

E

Principles of Engineering or Physics and Advanced Math with Teacher approval

This is the first semester of a year-long class where 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 is the second semester of the year-long class and will concentrate on commercial building systems.  These systems will include the 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.

Intro to Drafting CADD I

1 – CRHS – 11/12

C

Be in good standing

This is the first semester of a year-long class that is designed to help students prepare for paid AutoCAD draftsperson internships in the summer.  Students will learn about creating drawings for mechanical, electrical, sheet metal, welding, and Architecture.  The class starts with sketching with pen and paper to paper drawn technical drawings using equipment and then to AutoCAD drawings on the computer.  To qualify for internships students must continue into second semester of this class.

Intro to Drafting CADD II

1 – CRHS – 11/12

C

Intro to Drafting CADD I

This is the second semester of a year-long class that is designed to help students prepare for paid AUTOCAD draftsperson internships in the summer.  Students will continue to learn AutoCAD skills to prepare to test for a Technical Certificate.  To qualify for internships students must complete this class.

Engineering Design and Development I

1 – CRHS – 12

E

Students must have completed two years of approved engineering classes

This is the first semester of the Engineering CAPSTONE class.  Students must have completed a minimum of two full years of previous engineering classes (preferably Project Lead the Way) to qualify for this class.  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.
