    Robotics & 3D Modeling


    How does industry develop and test new products? How do we use computers to control machines and other devices? This class is developed for students planning to enter a technical or engineering career or those that just like computers and have an interest in "how do they do it?". Topics covered include a brief history of automation, careers in automation, portfolio development, 3D computer modeling, computer simulation, computer controlled manufacturing, robotics and presentations.

    Juniors and Seniors only. No Prerequisite.

    Grading Policy/Evaluation:

    Students will be graded on equal parts of tests/quizzes, projects and computer applications. Because most of our work must be accomplished in the classroom, daily attendance and participation is extremely important. Daily participation grades will count for 25% of the marking period grade.
