expand 5781  WOODWORKING & PLASTICS TECHNOLOGY 2  1  S  Prerequisite: Woodworking 1 and approval of the NTC Director 
  Delves into an indepth study of the properties of wood and its use as a building material. Study includes manmade wood products, such as plywood and wafer board, and plastics, such as polyethylene, polypropylene, ABS, and PVC. Students learn the principles of mass production, including research and product development, interchangeable parts, and the use of jigs and fixtures, and make use of both wood and plastic in a problem solving approach to manufacturing a product.
expand 5811  MARINE ROBOTICS  .5  Q  Pre-requisites: Strong Mathematics and Science skills recommended.   This course is offered for NHS-North only for the 2012-2013 school year.
  This course will introduce students to the world of robotics. Students will engage in hands-on, problem-solving activities with a team approach to develop a working underwater robot. The objective of this course is to introduce the basic concepts in robotics, focusing on design, building and testing of mobile robots applying current state of the art research and applications. Course information will be tied to lab experiments as students work in teams to build and test underwater robots, culminating in an end-of-course robot contest.
expand 5841  POWER MECHANICS 2  .5  Q  Prerequisite: Successful completion of Power Mechanics 1 or Small Engines.. 
  Emphasis in this course will be hands-on repair and diagnostic techniques covering the evolutionary development and scientific principles of small engine operation. Engine systems and trouble shooting methods, including failure analysis techniques will be presented as well as power transmission and drive trains.
expand 5861  GRAPHIC DESIGN 2  .5  Q  Prerequisite: Graphic Design 1. 
  Students continue to explore their working knowledge of the graphic design field. Students will focus on skill levels using Quark Express, In Design, Photoshop, and Illustrator design software. Graphic Design 2 is for the student interested in communications, critical thinking, production, problem solving, and the team approach to the final product. The student should be prepared to work individually and within groups to produce clear and effective communication. Students will search for career opportunities in the graphic field.
