Materials I – Construction Technology: Grades 9-12 – 0.5 credit (601)
This course is designed to help students understand the basic concepts and principles of construction technology and home maintenance. Basic woodworking skills with the appreciation of workmanship, safe and proper use of hand and power tools, material selection, and assembly techniques will be covered. Through hands-on activities, students will apply problem-solving techniques to the planning, building, and servicing of projects and structures. A materials fee may be assessed for this class.

Materials II – Manufacturing Technology: 1 credit (602)
Prerequisite: Materials I
This course is designed to help students understand the basic concepts of converting raw materials into marketable goods. Students must work cooperatively with others to research and develop an idea, utilize problem-solving skills and mass- produce a product in a plant or factory-like setting. Learning experiences include alternative materials and processes, production techniques, industrial workforce needs, and consumer awareness. Students will also develop material skills and techniques through individual project requirements. Students will have an opportunity to apply CNC (computer numeric control) Lathe and CNC Mill technology through project completion and development. A materials fee may be assessed for this class.

Materials III – Materials and Processes: 1 Credit (603)
Prerequisite: Materials II
Students in Materials III will have an opportunity to fulfill advanced materials requirements through the construction of individual projects. Emphasis will be placed on planning and design, proper material selection, various assembly techniques, advanced machine use with regard to safety and cabinet construction. The caliber of projects will depend upon individual skills and abilities. Students will have an opportunity to apply CNC (computer numeric control) Lathe and CNC Mill technology through project completion and development. A materials fee may be assessed for this class.

Materials IV – Product Development: 1 Credit (604)
Prerequisite: Materials III
Students in Materials IV will have an opportunity to fulfill advanced materials requirements such as: Raised Panel Doors, Dovetail Drawer Construction, Advanced Joinery, and Advanced Finishing and Refinishing Techniques through the hands- on construction of independent projects. Students will have an opportunity to apply CNC (computer numeric control) Lathe and CNC Mill technology through project completion and development. A materials fee may be assessed for this class.
