Drafting and Design

DRAFTING 9
(Technical Design) Students will explore basic drafting that will demonstrate architectural, mechanical and computer aided design (CAD) and model construction.

DRAFTING & DESIGN 10
During this introductory year, students will explore how to create basic drawings on the computer using the Vectorworks application programs. Some hand drawings will be required. The curriculum is designed to provide learning opportunities for male and female students with a wide range of abilities. Areas covered are basic shapes, orthographic projection, dimensioning and pictorial views. Students will be given designing and construction problems in these areas. They will be required to work cooperatively and to communicate their ideas to others.

DRAFTING & DESIGN 11
The Drafting and Design curriculum provides students with challenging opportunities to develop their skills through a practical, hands-on learning environment using project-based activities. During this senior year, students will explore how to create basic drawings on the computer using the Vectorworks application programs. Some hand drawings will be required. Areas covered are basic shapes, orthographic projection, dimensioning, pictorial views, developments, sections, architectural, and mechanical drawings. Students will be given designing and construction problems in these areas. Students will be required to work cooperatively and to communicate their ideas to others.The curriculum is designed to provide learning opportunities for male and female students with a wide range of abilities. This course is a pre-requisite to Drafting and Design 12.

DRAFTING & DESIGN 12
The Drafting and Design curriculum provides students with challenging opportunities to develop their ability at a higher level through a practical, hands-on learning environment using project-based activities. During this senior year students will explore how to create basic drawings on the computer using the Vectorworks application programs. Some hand drawings will be required. Areas covered are basic shapes, orthographic projection, dimensioning, pictorial views, developments, sections, auxiliary views, architectural, site plans and mechanical drawings. Students will build on the concepts learned in Drafting 11 and apply these design principles and processes to more advanced situations. Those students that enjoyed Drafting in a previous year can continue working on more challenging activities. Students will continue with computer work, drawing shapes and designing work.
