TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION

MANUFACTURING
Honors Design & Fabrication I Intended Audience : The Design and Fabrication course will be the first course all Tech Ed CTE students will participate in . As such , it has no prerequisite . Credit : One trimester = 0.5 credit Major Outcomes :
• Students will be able to demonstrate basic engineering design skills using CAD software .
• Students will demonstrate understanding of the four career pathways and explore one pathway in depth by designing and fabricating a product in that pathway .
• Students will demonstrate understanding of the materials ( properties and selection ) and processes used in product fabrication .
• Students will demonstrate the ability to correctly program / code CNC and 3D printing equipment .
• Students will demonstrate the safety attitudes and procedures required in the use of fabrication materials and equipment .
• Students will experience and be able to articulate the critical attributes of manufacturing careers needed to be successful in MN businesses and industries .
Instructional Focus :
• This course will focus instruction on students developing and then applying their knowledge and skills in the design and fabrication of a product . Students will be allowed to choose the career pathway of focus .
• Students will also be expected to integrate STEM and other content knowledge into their product design and fabrication .
• This is an “ application-based course ” with students demonstrating real-world application of knowledge and skills in the use of high-tech cutting-edge equipment , software and materials .
