Industrial Technology

  • WOODWORKING I        (8071-9071)          Grades 9-12         5 Credits

    The emphasis in this course is learning about wood as a material and as a valuable natural resource. The course will follow industry safety procedures and follow a hands-on approach to woodworking.  Processes of industry will be followed to provide the students with an opportunity to examine industry practice.  Students will be required to work through the design loop process and problem solving process to produce a project during each marking period.


    WOODWORKING II                      (9072)                    Grades 10-12     5 Credits

    Prerequisite:

    • Woodworking I

    In this course, students will develop skills necessary to design wood and maintain shop equipment.  Students will further develop techniques taught in Woodworking I and use skills to design and build furniture.  Mass production methods will be used when students create their own manufacturing process.  Emphasis will be placed on the skills necessary to succeed in the woodworking trade.


    WOODWORKING III    (9073)                    Grades 11-12       5 Credits

    Prerequisite:

    • Woodworking II

    This course will develop advanced skills in problem solving, design, construction and finishing of wood projects and other associated products.  Projects will be of a more complex nature and require teamwork to complete.  Students will have freedom to demonstrate creativity.  Properties of wood and other related materials will be explored to gain the knowledge needed for complex designs and construction.


    ELECTRONICS I             (9100)    Grades 10-12       5 Credits

    This course offers the student the opportu­nity to explore the basic principles of electricity from direct current to alternating current using resistance, capacitance, and inductance in circuits. An investigation of series and parallel circuits, using various components, will be expanded to household wiring and the repair of minor appliances. Basic electronic theories will be introduced, and students will become familiar with basic electronic testing equipment and basic troubleshooting proce­dures.


    ELECTRONICS II                     (9101)          Grades 11-12      5 Credits

    Prerequisite:

    • Electronics I

    This course expands the skills learned in Electronics I to the application of tran­sistors and other components to radio and television circuitry. Modern test equipment, its operation, and testing procedures will be used to check and evaluate radio frequencies, audio frequencies, and other subassemblies. Individual projects will be used to provide additional practical application of classroom studies.
