Technology and Engineering (CTE, AAF-S, PS)

A fee may be required in these courses

Electronics 1 - Course #8500 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
This is an activity/theory‑oriented course designed to provide each student with a fundamental understanding of the language, concepts, components, and equipment used in electronics. Some of the topics covered include safety, electrical current, voltage sources, electronic components & schematic symbols, resistive circuits, Ohm's Law, producing printed circuit boards, soldering, using multimeters and oscilloscopes, semiconductor fundamentals and devices, and an introduction to digital electronics. Participation in the SkillsUSA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this course.

Electronics 2 - Course #8501 | Credit (CTE) | Grade 11, 12 | 0.5/1.0 Credits
Prerequisite: Electronics 1
This course is the second in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to assemble and operate electric/electronic equipment used in business, industry, and manufacturing. Instruction includes training in safety, numbering systems, Boolean algebra, logic diagrams, digital devices and combinational logic circuits.

Electronics 3 - Course #8502 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 11, 12 | 1.0 Credits
Prerequisite: Electronics 1 and Electronics 2
This course is the third in a sequence of courses that allows students to maximize their understanding of digital electronics. Students will study logical gates, encoders, decoders, flip‑flops, counters, registers, arithmetic circuits, memories, and computers. Problem solving techniques and circuit design methods are an integral part of the curriculum. Using digital techniques, students will learn to assemble systems of their own design to suit any particular need. Students will also study computer control and learn to interface sensors, motors, lights, etc., to a computer. Students who are ready to focus on digital electronics or interested students with limited space in their schedule should consider taking this electronics course first.  Participation in the SkillsUSA youth leadership organization may be an integral part of this courses.

Engineering Principles 1 - Course #8108 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
The first in a sequence of “hands on” courses that tie observations and concepts common to a variety of different engineering disciplines in order to develop a better understanding of basic math and science principles used in engineering. By utilizing problem solving skills in a laboratory environment, students will develop skills and attitudes that impact and expand occupational opportunities in engineering. This is a foundation course in the Engineering Pathway.

Engineering Principles 2 - Course #8109 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
The second in a sequence of “hands on” courses that ties observations and concepts common to a variety of different engineering disciplines in order to develop a better understand of basic math and science principles used in engineering. By utilizing problem solving skills in a laboratory environment, students will develop skills that impact and expand occupational opportunities in engineering.

Physics with Technology (Foundation/Core) - Course #8505 | Credit (CTE, PS) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5/1.0 Credits
Prerequisite or Corequisite: Secondary Mathematics 1
The physics/electronics curriculum is divided into four major topics: matter, motion, energy, and circuits. The study is developed around systems and the nature of science and helps students understand the close relationship between electronics and other sciences, characterizing electronics as an extension of physics. Participation in the TSA youth organization may be an integral part of this course.

Robotics 1 - Course #8117 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
This is the first in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with a lab-based, hands-on curriculum combining electrical, mechanical and engineering principles. Students will learn to design, build, program and control robotic devices. A rigorous study and application of basic electronic concepts will include: sources of energy, electrical safety, use and identification basic electrical components, sensors and actuators. Engineering concepts will include: mechanical design, prototype development, design testing, programming, and proper engineering documentation.

Robotics 2 - Course #8119 | Credit (CTE, AAF-S) | Grade 10-12 | 0.5 Credits
The second in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with a lab-based, hands-on curriculum combining electrical, mechanical, and engineering principles. Students will learn to design, build, program and control robotic devices. A rigorous study and application of electrical concepts will include: sources of energy, electrical safety, use and identification of basic electronic components, sensors and actuators. Engineering concepts will include: mechanical design, prototype development, design testing, programming and proper engineering documentation.
