Grades 9-12. Full year.

Introduction to Construction
Introduction  to  Construction  is  a  course  that  will  offer  hands-­‐on  activities  and  real  world  experiences  related  to   the  skills  essential  in  residential,  commercial  and  civil  building  construction.  During  the  course  students  will  be   introduced  to  the  history  and  traditions  of  construction  trades.  The  student  will  also  learn  and  apply  knowledge   of  the  care  and  safe  use  of  hand  and  power  tools  as  related  to  each  trade.  In  addition,  students  are  introduced   to  blueprint  reading,  applied  math,  basic  tools  and  equipment,  and  safety.  Students  will  demonstrate  building   construction  techniques,  including  concrete  and  masonry,  framing,  electrical,  plumbing,  dry  walling,  HVAC,  and   painting  as  developed  locally  in  accordance  with  available  space  and  technologies.  Students  learn  how   architectural  ideas  are  converted  into  projects  and  how  projects  are  managed  during  a  construction  project  in   this  course.  Students  study  construction  technology  topics  such  as  preparing  a  site,  doing  earthwork,  setting   footings  and  foundations,  building  the  superstructure,  enclosing  the  structure,  installing  systems,  finishing  the   structure,  and  completing  the  site.  Students  also  investigate  topics  related  to  the  purchasing  and  maintenance   of  structures,  special  purpose  facilities,  green  construction  and  construction  careers. Grade 10; 1 credit per semester - maximum of 2 credits.

Introduction to Engineering Design 

Introduction  to  Engineering  Design  is  an  introductory  course  which  develops  student  problem  solving  skills  using   the  design  process.    Students  document  their  progress  of  solutions  as  they  move  through  the  design  process.     Students  develop  solutions  using  elements  of  design  and  manufacturability  concepts.  They  develop  hand   sketches  using  2D  and  3D  drawing  techniques.  Computer  Aided  Design  (CAD).
