      Advanced Physics 1 and Advanced Engineering Technology (Y479)
     

     2.0000 Course Credits

    Suggested Grade Level 11-12
    Prerequisites: Successful completion of two science courses (i.e. Earth Systems Science 1 or Advanced Earth Systems Science 1; Biology 1 or
    Advanced Biology 1; Chemistry 1 or Advanced Chemistry 1; Environmental Science 1) Completion of CP Algebra 2. Concurrent enrollment in
    Precalculus or AP Calculus.


    This nested set of courses is designed for the student seriously considering a career in engineering or a related technical field. Advanced Physics 1
    and Advanced Engineering Technology are scheduled back-to-back (in consecutive blocks) allowing for project work and integration of physics into
    engineering applications. The student will receive 1 credit and a separate weighted grade for each section of the course.
    Physics concepts will be algebra-based and include linear and rotational kinematics, dynamics, momentum, energy, wave theory, sound, electricity,
    magnetism, and other special topics time permitting. Critical thinking and problem solving skills are stressed with evaluation being based upon
    tests, quizzes, laboratory exercises, projects, homework and participation.
    Advanced Engineering gives students the opportunity to learn about and experience engineering topics though direct instruction, class work,
    activities, tests, labs and projects. Students will also experience engineering through guest speakers, field trips and face-to-face interactions with
    practicing engineers. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts are emphasized throughout.



       
      Exploring Engineering (F/S710)
      Pre-requisites: College Prep Algebra 1 or higher

    This semester course introduces the student to the many different career opportunities in the field of engineering.  Units covered include measurements, individual and group problem solving, 3D modeling and printing and product dissection. Field trips and guest speakers will allow the students to experience direct connections to the workplace. Science,Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts are emphasized in class.  Evaluation will be based on quizzes, tests, labs, projects and a two page semester paper (in place of a final exam) on a career of interest to the student.




      Electronics Systems Engineering (Y719)
      Pre-requisites: College Prep Algebra 1 or higher

    Electronics Systems Engineering is an introductory course into the high tech world of electronics, with a special emphasis on components of a circuit, measurements, how electronic systems work, and design.  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts are emphasized in this class.  Instructional methods will include direct individual and group instruction, demonstrations, labs, videos, worksheets and projects.  Assessment will be through written tests, lab reports, worksheets and project evaluations.  This course will be offered in the 2017-2018 year, with Digital and Analog Electronics offered in 2016-2017.




       

    Digital and Analog Electronics Engineering  (Y784)
      Pre-requisites: College Prep Albegra 1 or higher

    Digital and Analog Electronics Engineering is an introductory course into the high tech world of electronics, with a special emphasis on solid state devices such as diodes, transistors and analog and digital integrated circuits and microprocessors.  Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts are emphasized in this class.  Instructional methods will include direct individual and group instruction, demonstrations, labs, videos, worksheets and projects.  Assessment will be through written tests, lab reports, worksheets and project evaluations.  This course will be offered in the 2016-2017 year, with Electronic Systems Engineering offered in 2017-2018.

     



      Robotics Engineering(Y783)
      Corequisites: College Prep Geometry or higher

    The Robotics Engineering course is a full year class for students who want to learn what robots do and how to use them.  Students will learn the theory and practice of different robotic devices such as robot arms, PLC's, CNC machines, 3D printers, laser engravers, and autonomous robots using C language based programs.  An integrated approach to Science, Technology,Engineering and Robotics (STEM) is emphasized in class.  A three prong approach is used to teach robotics via programming, mechanics and electronics.  Evaluation is through written tests, projects, labs and design challenges. 

    Engineering by Appointment (Y798)

    Pre-requisite: 1 year of classroom experience and approval of classroom teacher.

     
    Engineering by Appointment is for students who want to work on advanced individualized projects outside the scope of the other course offerings.  Examples include community service, CTSO or Graduation projects. Students will present their work to a group of peers and faculty at the end of the year.




      Co-operative Work Experience in Engineering (Y722)
     
    Pre-requisite: 1 year of classroom experience and approval of classroom teacher.
     
     
    Cooperative Work Experience is for students who want to have a work experience during the school day. The student must be enrolled in Diversified Occupations/Capstone (Y690) which meets daily for the full year.  The CWE must match their Program of Study (Engineering).  Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) will permit students to either start school late or leave school early in order to fulfill their training agreement.
      Diversified Occupations (Y693):
      Prerequisite: 12th Grade

    This is a full year, one credit course for all students interested in pursuing employment during the school day. The course prepares students for entry into the workforce at all levels and is designed for all students, regardless of post-secondary plans. Instruction is provided in such skills as employer-employee relations, applications and resumes, interview techniques and the acquisition of life skills. The course is designed to increase skills through individual and class study, and on-the-job training opportunities, encouraging attitudes and habits which meet employment standards. Course delivery includes class discussion, guest speakers, computer applications and audio-video materials. Students are evaluated on class assignments and individual projects. Students who are interested in earning two additional credits for working must concurrently register for Cooperative Work Experience.
