Engineering Basics  - This course is for students that love to problem solve or work with puzzles. They learn to design process, critical thinking, and 3D modeling.

Applied Engineering - Once you have a general understanding about engineering (Engineering Basics), you can take this class to apply it to problems/situations around the community. You will be able to create solutions to simple water dilemmas or to turning a stator into an alternative energy source.

Small Engines and Power - Students will learn hands on how internal combustion engines work by taking apart an engine, putting it back together and making it run. Other topics will include basic transmissions, pneumatic power, and hydraulic power.

Automotive Basics - Interested in know the different systems of a car? Are you thinking of ever buying a vehicle? In this course we'll cover buying/selling vehicles, basic bodywork, brakes & tires, and general engine upkeep. You'll be able to put this into practice out in the shop.
