Industrial Technology – This is a semester class that meets daily. This is an exploratory class that will introduce students to a variety of “hands-on” experiences in a shop environment. The three major units that are covered are: Unit #1 – Drafting & Design which includes: ruler reading, drafting, intro to hand and power tools, and two take home projects, a small coat rack and a small CO2 powered race car. Unit #2 – Metals which includes: intro to Wire feed welding, intro to Plasma cutting and a take home project, a metal candle holder. Unit #3 – Computer Aided Design (CAD) which includes: intro into computer aided design using a drawing program on the computers here at HMS and two take home projects, a light switch cover and a clock. There will be a project fee of $20.00 to cover the cost of materials for the class. Scholarships are available if a student is unable to pay the fee. If you choose to take both the Industrial Tech Project class and the Industrial Tech class the total cost for both classes would be $30.
