Course: Beginning Engineering
Grades: 10 – 12
Location: Science and Technology Centre
A state-of-the-art lab helps students investigate various aspects of the engineering field.
Students will use hands-on learning equipment to conduct meaningful engineering investigations that emphasize mathematics and science.
Students are then able to choose a pathway of their choice and complete the learning objectives associated with it. The pathways are ELECTRICAL-Electrical Control 1, Electrical Fabrication 1, Machine Tools 1, Mechanical Fabrication;CIVIL-Structural 1, Wind Concepts, Measurement Tools 1, Surveying 1; MECHANICAL-Mechanisms 1, Solar Concepts, Pneumatics 1.
Instruction covers the fundamentals of engineering as well as a focus in ROBOTICS, AC/DC 1, CAD 1, CNC 1 and PRINT READING.
Students will work in teams to research, design, and create a solution to an open-ended engineering challenge. They will complete a major design project and showcase it to a team of real engineers.
In addition, this course will cultivate student’s knowledge of engineering so as to determine whether engineering and technology are the career fields they desire.
