Course#: CT250SSA

Length & Credit: 1 trimester/.5 credit/SL-Arts-CT

Grade(s): 9, 10, 11, 12

Prerequisite: None

College Credit: COCC, 2 credits, $TBD

This course teaches students to create, use, edit and combine 2d and 3d graphics and art technology using Solidworks, for cad drawings, CNC machining, 3d printing. and various other types of technology. This class is highly creative, visually exciting class and is for a wide variety of students interested in creating 2d and 3d geometric drawings and using various forms of technology. The goal of this course is to teach students how to use Solidworks mechanical design automation software to build parametric models of parts and asemblies and how to make simple drawings of those parts and assemblies.
