This course is designed for students that have an interest in project based learning. It is a “hands-on” course intent on developing functional design products. By integrating Science, Technology, Art, Engineering and Math; students will utilize and develop CAD design, 3-D fabrication, mechanical skills, and aesthetic design skills through modeling and building of functioning prototypes. In addition to the development of products, the course investigates related areas of design and the factors that drive the sales and influence public perception of manufactured goods.
Throughout the course of the year students will be expected to collaborate, design, create, innovate and work through the Design Process to ultimately produce a custom "one of a kind" two wheeled vehicle.
-students will use their knowledge of the Principles and Elements of design to make informed decisions on products made
-students will solve 2-d and 3d design problems while working the the design process.
-students will become familiar with fabrication techniques and skills required in designing and building a two wheeled vehicle
-students will explore and gain understanding of advertising, propaganda, and the effect it has on creating mass produced products
-all students will walk away with a new level of confidence and understanding that they can translate thoughts and ideas into concrete, tangible, useable products
