Material Design


Students will design and construct projects using wood, metal, and plastic. Students will analyze the design and manufacturing process as they create useful products for themselves and others. Students produce a “class project” (an American Flag display box for the families of deceased veterans) and then have time to produce one or more personal projects of their choosing.


Safe efficient use of machines and tools along with the design process are stressed in this course.

Trimester Plan:

Students begin the trimester with the planning/design process and quickly move on to safety practices for each of the machines they will use in the shop. Students design and fabricate their personal projects. As they complete their projects, they begin fabrication of the American flag boxes for the families of deceased veteran’s. The final assessment will be a presentation of student plans, problems and solutions for their personal projects.
