Engineering of Mechanical Systems
This course is an introduction to the scientific models involved in much of mechanical engineering. In this course, students will begin by looking at a series of models that will help them describe and understand linear motion in either one or two dimensions. Students will then learn a series of causal models that will give them the ability to predict the behavior of simple mechanical systems. Finally, students will learn conservation laws (energy and momentum) and learn to solve problems using these unifying principles.
College Credit Available for this Course! Students can opt in to take the AP Physics 1 test and will receive additional support for the test during the year.
Engineering and Design 1
This course introduces students to the fabrication techniques used to build mechanical systems with metal, wood, and plastic. Students will be taught to use advanced fabrication tools such as a CNC mill, table saws, and a lathe. Students will also develop their Fusion 360 (Computer-Aided Drafting) skills involved in creating mechanical systems.
