  • 9th, 10th Grade - .5 Practical Art credit
    This is an introductory course preparing students who are interested in machining, construction, robotics, and manufacturing. Students will engage in project based learning lessons with hands on activities to reinforce the content. Units of student include industrial shop safety, math specific to measurement, the applications of precision measurement tools, manufacturing processes, materials and their applications, mechanical fasteners, manufacturing mechanics, basic electrical circuits and measurement, basic blueprints/schematic reading and drawing.

  • 10th, 11th, 12th Grade – 2 Practical Art credits
    This course provides classroom instruction and lab experiences related to metalworking. It focuses on the operation of equipment such as the lathe, milling machines, grinders, drilling machines, precision measuring instruments, and hand tools. Blueprint reading and math are important parts of this course. Students who enroll for this course should enjoy working with machines and making metal projects. 

  • 11th, 12th Grade – 2 Practical Art credits
    This course includes advanced instruction machining metal. The course focuses on milling machines, boring and drilling, the use of surface grinders, vertical and horizontal boring and drilling machines, basic study of CNC equipment, and job seeking. Students in this program can qualify to take the NIMS (National Institute for Metalworking Skills) Measurement, Materials and Safety Exam and become certified. 

  • 11th Grade. 12th grade - 1 Practical Art Credit
    Prerequisite: Machine Technology 1, Computer Aided Manufacturing
    In this course students build upon the knowledge and skills obtained in the computer aided manufacturing or machine technology courses and progress to using computer aided machining software to program milling and turning operations. Additionally, students will complete hands on lessons in machine safety, set-up, operation, and maintenance of CNC milling and turning machines. Students will complete project based lessons to machine parts simulating agricultural, automotive, and aerospace components. Students will have the opportunity to earn an industry related credentials specific to CNC machine operation.

  • 11th, 12th Grade – .5 Practical Art credit
    This course focuses on the physical properties of metals as well as the study and practice of welding. Students learn plasma arc cutting and electrode selection. They also study welding techniques (arc welding, mig welding). In addition, students study safety issues and learn to read blueprints.
