• Competition brings

    STEM skills to life

     

    VEX Competitions, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation , task teams of students with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Classroom STEM concepts are put to the test as students learn lifelong skills in teamworkleadershipcommunications, and more. Tournaments are held year-round at the regional, state, and national levels and culminate at the VEX Robotics World Championship each April! 

  • Introduction to Industrial Design - In the Introduction to Industrial Design course, students are introduced to what industrial designers do. They redesign a simple office supply product, learn and practice technical drawing techniques, and are introduced to how products are made. They explore what reverse engineering is, the importance of patents, as well as what and how engineering notebooks are formatted and used. Finally, they are introduced to human factors in engineering as well as rapid prototyping. They will also use 3D design software to complete several projects.
