This semester course offers a fantastic way to be introduced to a variety of STEM engineering machines and tools, and computer graphic imaging software packages, and concepts. These software packages are used for 2D and 3D model animation, and image design. Software packages introduced in this course include: Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, and After Effects. Autodesk’s 3D Studio is used for 3D modeling and animation.
Makerware, and Cura software is used for creating 3D prints on our in classroom 3D printers, and Photoshop and Illustrator are used to create print and laser engraved projects. Solidworks will be introduced for future CAD skills. Throughout the course, you will be involved with hands‐on experiences, creating desktop video with Adobe Premiere, Gaming level design with 3D Studio and Unity3D, original images for print using Adobe Photoshop, and Photograph repairs and enhancements using Photoshop. Concepts of STEM technology will be learned while each student works on his or her own high‐end PC within the classroom. Each student will develop several 3D prints and laser engraved projects using our Epilog laser. The goal is to enhance and develop skills for all State High graduates as they enter an increasingly technological world. This course is a prerequisite for Computer Engineering Graphics 2.
