Pathways: STEM Pathway, Robotics and Automation
Grades: 11, 12
Credit: 1

How are things made? What processes go into creating products? How has automation changed manufacturing? You will be presented with design problems that require the use of SolidWorks to develop solutions. Students will learn to use CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machinery to produce your design and learn to program the robot to produce your product in quantity. Utilizes project/problem base learning. Students will design, create, and program robotic devices. Four new software applications are learned in this course.

The following are expected outcomes:

  • Learn how things are made.
  • Program Robots & Robotic Arms
  • Programmable Micro-Computers
  • Solid Works Engineering Modeling Software
  • Automated Machining (CNC Mill)
  • Learn to speak the language of Machines

Counseling Notes:
1. This course is recommended for students interested in design and engineering
2. Students registering for CIM should have successfully completed or currently be enrolled in Contemporary Math II

Course fee: $20.00
