Engineering – Students will focus on how to use engineering skills to solve everyday problems. The program takes a hands-on approach in introducing the students to Robotics and 3-D modeling as it applies to engineering design.
 
Manufacturing and Machine Technologies – Students will design projects that use a CNC, lathe, and welding with principals of design and math applications.
 
There is a $75 cost and registration is required by May 15, 2009. Registration forms are available in the middle school guidance offices. Class size is limited.
