The Applied Design Technology course catagory applies to courses taught by Mr. Sayre and include the three pre-vocational training courses of Applied Design I, Applied Design II, Introduction to Engine Fundamentals and Welding, the college preparedness courses of Introduction to Engineering, Introduction to Architecture, Introduction to Industrial Design and the mide level STEM courses for 7th and 8th grade.  

The 7th grade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) course is designed to introduce students to how the four disciplines of STEM integrate into our technology driven world in a hands on and project based curriculum.  The students will learn about electronics, build basic circuits and learn how to work with their hands in the wood shop and design, build and race a CO2 race car. 

The accelerated 7th grade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) course is designed to introduce students to how the four disciplines of STEM integrate into our technology driven world in a hands on and project based curriculum with emphasis on student created projects and a deeper explanation of science and math content.  The students will learn about electronics and electricity, build basic circuits, develop their own circuits and learn how to work with their hands in the wood shop and design, build and race a CO2 race car. 

The 8th grade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) course is designed to introduce students to how the four disciplines of STEM integrate into our technology driven world in a hands on and project based curriculum. The students will learn basic computer literacy designed to help them understand a technology integral to all of our daily lives and be introduced to how the internet works and the dangers of online cybercrime.  They will also learn basic design skills while building a simple wood shop project and then follow a set of plans to build a bubble gum machine as a final project.

The accelerated 7th grade STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) course is designed to introduce students to how the four disciplines of STEM integrate into our technology driven world in a hands on and project based curriculum with emphasis on student created projects in computer programing.  The students will learn about computers and coding, build a simple video game in “Scratch” and learn how to work with their hands in the wood shop building a bubble gum machine. 

This 36 week course is designed to introduce the student to the automotive and diesel repair trades as well as the field of welding.  Students learn hands-on disasembling and assembling a small engine while overviewing the fundamental content of how internal combustion engines work and the various systems that make up a modern automobile.  The second half of the class is dedicated to introducing the student to ARC as well as MIG welding fundamentals.  

This 36 week course is about gaining a better understanding of how you might pursue a career in the trades in construction, electrical/HVAC or other building trades.  You will build projects in softwood and hardwood, learn basic electrical wiring fundamentals and further develop your ability to draw simple technical drawings to help realize your projects.  

This 36 week course is about learning how to work with your hands building and designing woodshop projects that you get to take home!  You will also learn how to organize your thinking and create basic drawings on paper that help you bring your designs to reality and prepare you to be successful in the vocational fields.

This 36 week course is a STEM based course where students will learn the basic engineering design process, design and build various  projects using the EDP and learn 2D, and 3D drafting and part modeling using industry standard software.  

This 18 week course introduces the student to the basic skills needed to take your love of fine art and make a career out of designing objects and layouts in a production art setting.  Students will learn basic product sketching and perspective drawing.  Students will also integrate their hand sketched designs into digital formats and create a final product design in a digital format.

This 18 week course introduces the student to the basic ideas of art and architecture as well as the basic architectural design process.  Students will develop their architectural style, build a 3D model of a design of their own and produce a traditional floor plan of an existing structure.  Basic 2D sketching and 3D modeling will be taught as part of the architectural process.
