    Course Title: Metals 1- Manufacturing
    Subject Area: CTE
    Grade Level(s): 9, 10, 11, 12 Credits: 1

    Course Description
    Manufacturing 1 is an introductory course where students develop skills in basic machine shop operations using precision and non-precision tools with a heavy emphasis on shop safety. Students gain shop experience including proper use of hand and power tools, familiarization with shielded metal arc welding, and a variety of machining tools.

    Manufacturing I will incorporate a mix of lecture, demonstration, and hands on experiences to help students become comfortable using the hand tools and machines of the metalworker. Students are expected to demonstrate proper safety procedures in a shop environment at all times. The metals program has also incorporated the NCCER Core Certificate Program, a nationally recognized program that if earned will give students a extra boost in employment opportunities.

    Prerequisites

    Course Title: Metals 2 - Manufacturing
    Subject Area: CTE
    Grade Level(s): 10, 11, 12 Credits: 1

    Course Description
    Manufacturing 2 revisits and enriches the machining and fabrication skills learned in Manufacturing-1 with a considerable concentration on intermediate and advanced skills for using the lathe and milling machines, oxy-fuel cutting, and welding, including shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, and flux core arc welding. This year we have added the opportunity for each student to earn an industry certificate through NCCER, The National Center for Construction Education and Research. This certificate is offered at no fee to the students but in an industry, they can cost as between $2000 and $3000 for each course

    Prerequisites
    Passed Metals 1 with a C or better.


    Course Title: Metals 3- Manufacturing
    Subject Area: CTE
    Grade Level(s): 11, 12 Credits: 1

    Course Description
    Manufacturing 3 takes the skills learned in both Manufacturing 1 and 2 and brings them together to create a real world project. Students use the first semester to enhance their manufacturing and welding skills before tackling a personal or shop project referred to has a Technical Skills Assessment. Students take their project from idea to fabrication, documenting every step of the way. Students also can complete their NCCER certificate if they have not already done so.

    Prerequisites
    Passed Metals 2 with a C or better.


    Course Title: Metals 4 - Manufacturing
    Subject Area: CTE
    Grade Level(s): 12 Credits: 1

    Course Description
    Manufacturing 4 students are expected to maximize their skills and knowledge from Manufacturing 3. Students are expected to take an active role in futuring their manufacturing education through independent study of desired area of interest and by practicing skills to mastery. As evidence of mastery they must create at least two approved individual or shop projects according to the TSA guidelines. Students also can complete their NCCER certificate if they have not already done so.

    Prerequisites
    Pass Metal 3 with a C or better.


    Course Title: Rapid Manufacturing
    Subject Area: CTE
    Grade Level(s): 9, 10, 11, 12 Credits: 0.5

    Course Description
    Rapid Manufacturing is a unique class designed in the Tribal Teaching Format where experienced students teach and guide newer students. Although the instructor will provide some instruction, training, and guidance much of the work is self-guided and self-paced. As students progress they are expected to share their knowledge and skills with their fellow students. Advanced students are generally the leaders. This class will focus on developing CAD skills through Rhino, Inkscape, and Silhouette. Students will create a number of specific files in each software form to provide evidence of their understanding. Students will use vinyl cutters, a laser engraver, 3D-printers, and a small CNC mill to create shop and individual project. The manufacturing has a student lead business called Lions Manufacturing, which is ran through this class. Students provide items to be sold and the profits are returned to the program and benefit the end of the year BBQ.
