WOODS II (261) Class Level: 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1/2 Prerequisite: Woods I

This course is designed to continue to introduce students to the Carpentry/Carpenter occupation. Students are instructed in areas of safety, including hand tool, power tool, ladder, scaffolding and the use of safety harnesses. Students are introduced to the theoretical knowledge needed to lay out rafter, stairs, and basic framing techniques. Students demonstrate knowledge of blueprint reading, including foundations, concrete, floor plans, specification schedules, and electrical, plumbing and mechanical symbols. Students demonstrate entry-level skills in all facets of residential construction. Technology-related mathematics, reading, writing, vocabulary, blueprint reading, and science are integrated throughout the curriculum. This course is designed for the experienced students and will advance their skills and knowledge of the woodworking industry as they complete a project(s) of their choice. Emphasis will be placed on leadership, work ethics, specialized woodworking machine processes, and finishing techniques related to selected project(s).

INTRODUCTION TO WELDING (265) Class Level: 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1/2 Prerequisite: None

Beginning Welding course enables students to gain knowledge of the properties, uses, and applications of various metals, skills in various processes used to join and cut metals (such as oxyacetylene, shielded metal, metal inert gas, and tungsten arc processes), and experience in identifying, selecting, and rating appropriate techniques. Welding courses often include instruction in interpreting blueprints or other types of specifications.

DRAFTING I (275) Class Level: 10, 11, 12 Credit: 1/2 Prerequisite: None

Drafting 1 is designed for students who are interested in exploring careers in engineering and architectural design. This course introduces students to the basics of technical drawing, reading blueprints and applying measurement to create 2D designs using appropriate drafting tools. Utilizing Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D modeling programs students will also learn how to utilize Autodesk AutoCAD to create geometric 2D designs then make those designs come to life by carving projects on a CNC. In addition, they will also develop 3D models skills, creating detailed assemblies, schematic and perspective drawing on AutoDesk Inventor. In this program students will apply these skills to making their design realistic on a 3D Printer.
