DRAFTING & DESIGN 10 MTED-10

 

Drafting is technical drawing which communicates all details required to make manufactured products - from iPods to industrial structures, homes to hotels.  Drafting applies directly to careers in engineering, architecture, and interior design.  You will learn to do technical drawings on computers.  Students will learn to use a 3-D printer which can quickly make design ideas into usable objects.   

DRAFTING & DESIGN 11  MDD-11

This course will introduce new students to technical drawing as well as building on drafting skills acquired in Drafting 10.  You will learn computer drafting skills that can be applied to the fields of architecture, engineering, and manufacturing.  Drafting is truly an international "language" which is understood by designers and builders around the world.  The course will include mechanical and architectural drafting.  You will design a two story house and make a 3-D model of it. Students will learn to use a 3-D printer which can quickly make design ideas into usable objects.   

DRAFTING & DESIGN 12 MDD-12

                                   

This advanced design course builds on skills learned in Drafting 11 and allows students to direct their design energy to match their areas of interest:  mechanical, product designs, architectural or interior design. Computers will be the primary design tool and students have the opportunity to make 3-D models of some of their designs by using computer controlled machines (CNC router and lathe).  Hand-made models of house designs and interior designs are included in other options to match students' areas of design interest.  Students will learn to use a 3-D printer which can quickly make design ideas into usable objects.   

ENGINEERING 10 MTE-10 

Want hands-on experience of what engineers do?   Engineering 10 introduces students to many of the practical applications of mechanical engineering.  You will design, build, and test model bridges, buildings, planes, boats, and cars.  During this process students will learn computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques using metal, plastic, wood, and composite materials.  This course is open to students in Grade 9 or 10.

ENGINEERING 11 YERT-1A 

Thinking of going into Engineering at university?  It is an exciting career that demands the most of your mind and hands.  Engineering involves hands-on problem solving.  Engineering 11 provides you the opportunity to apply your Science knowledge to practical projects that demand problem solving skills and manipulating various materials with machine and hand tools.  You may work on practical assignments in Physics (bridge and catapult construction) and build group projects for competitions like the UBC Physics Olympics and Kwantlen Polytechnic University Science Challenge. Students will learn to use a 3-D printer which can quickly make design ideas into usable objects.  Check out the following links to see examples of things the class can be involved in.  This course will count as Applied Skills credits for graduation.  Check out the following:  YouTube:  search: "UBC Physics Olympics", "Kwantlen Science Challenge", "radio controlled sailboats", "radio controlled glider planes", "model bridge building", "destructive materials testing".  (Also:  www.strandbeest.com).  Courses for students interested in an engineering career are:  English 11, Physics 11, Pre-Calculus 12, English 12, Chemistry 11, Chemistry 12, Physics 12. 

DESIGN AND ENGINEERING 12 YERT-2A

Hands-on, minds-on!  Developed for Grade 11 and 12 students, Design and Engineering Technology 12 is an excellent course for students who like to put their own ideas to work.  Design and Engineering Technology 12 provides students an opportunity to apply and expand their academic knowledge and related hands-on skills.  Students work on their own, in pairs and in groups to overcome challenging design problems using a wide variety of tools and materials.  hands-on activities focus on real-world problem-solving through researching, designing, engineering and building prototype solutions. Students will learn to use a 3-D printer which can quickly make design ideas into usable objects and will develop personal skills, learn hand and machine skills, research and information technology skills, design processes and basic engineering principles.

WOODWORK 10 MTEW-10

This is a "hands-on" course of learning-by-doing.  Students will design and build projects which they can take home.  They will learn to use all the machinery in the woodshop while making a table, and other projects of their choice.  Students will be introduced to computer controlled machines.  Marks are based on the students' completion of practical work.  Projects include:  a bed-side table, CD rack, skateboard, chair to fit in your locker, name plate, puzzles and games. 

CARPENTRY & JOINERY 11 MCJ--11

This “hands-on” course focuses on the use of most machinery in the woodshop.  Students who have taken Woodwork 9/10 will learn advanced procedures on machines.  Students will build a piece of furniture and will be able to design and build other projects of their choice.  Students will be introduced to computer controlled machines.  Marks are based on students’ practical work. 

CARPENTRY & JOINERY 12 MCJ--12

This is a general woodworking skills course which builds upon the skills learned in Grade 11.  The skills learned in this course are directly applicable to either the carpentry or joinery trades.  Students will be able to choose projects within their personal abilities and budgets. 

CARPENTRY& JOINERY 12:  FURNITURE CONSTRUCTION  MCJF-12

This senior course focuses on producing quality, solid wood furniture.  Students will learn advanced joinery techniques while making furniture of their choice.  Larger projects will require students to pay for the cost of materials. 

CARPENTRY & JOINERY 12:  CABINET CONSTRUCTION    MCJC-12

This senior course focuses on joinery skills for the creation of cabinet work for kitchens, entertainment centres, speaker boxes, etc.  Skills learned can be applied to work in a millwork shop which makes furnishings for large buildings such as banks and hotels.  Large personal projects will require students to pay for the cost of materials. 

CARPENTRY & JOINERY 12:  CNC WOOD PROCESSES      MCJW-12

Computer Numeric Control (CNC) is the term used to describe machines which are controlled by computers.  Templeton’s wood shop is fortunate to have two computer controlled machines:  a CNC router and a CNC lathe.  In this course students can focus their attention on learning how to program and operate these machines.  The software used is of industry standard and can directly apply to post-secondary training or employment.  Projects can include speaker boxes, games, toys, skateboards, sailboards, musical instruments. 

CARPENTRY & JOINERY 12:  WOODCRAFT PRODUCTS      MCJP-12

This is an open-ended course which allows students to explore the artistic side of woodworking.  In choosing projects, students are encouraged to think outside “box construction” and incorporate curved surfaces and various textures such as carving and textured finishes.  Projects could include new chair designs, wood carvings, 3D wood puzzles and games, guitar, violin and marimba making, snowboards, and boat building.​​​
