Technology & Engineering Dept.
Welcome to the Technology and Engineering Department. Our department offers a variety of hands on learning experiences in the following fields of technology: Engineering, Architecture, Computer Animation and Graphics, Woodworking, Metalworking, Small Engines and Fabrication (in the AVHS International FAB LAB).
In these courses we explore production and manufacturing processes. We emphasize critical thinking skills including problem solving and applying a design process. We offer the students the ability to apply skills in a real world setting with hands on, activities based learning. They are using more than theory in their activities. The skills that they learn are valued by many college engineering programs and by companies with a STEM focus and that are technology oriented. Also look at our Project Lead the Way information. This is pre-college engineering experience.
Our department offers a unique opportunity for students to explore cutting edge technologies such as 3D printing and scanning, laser engraving and CNC machining and plasma cutting. This is done in our state of the art facility, the AVHS Fab Lab, which is a member of the International Fab Lab Association.
