Woodwork

WOODWORK 8
 
In the woodworking 8 course, students are exposed to the areas of shaping, cutting, finishing, fastening, boring and layout. Students will complete at least two projects during the rotation, one of which will be a small wooden box. This box will allow students to be introduced to CNC technology as they will be cutting a design on their lid using the ShopBot CNC router. This course introduces some machine tools, but mainly focuses on developing hand tool skills that provide a strong foundation for future courses.
 
 
WOODWORK 9
 
Students in Woodworking 9 will learn how to safely and effectively use power tools utilized in the wood shop. They will also learn the order of operations and be able to measure and lay out project components. Students will begin with rough lumber and use the skills and equipment to build a number of different yet challenging projects. The CNC router will also be available to enhance the projects by allowing students to engrave designs and logos onto their individual projects.
 
 
APPLIED DESIGN, SKILLS AND TECHNOLOGY – WOODWORK 10
 
The Woodwork 10 course emphasizes student safety throughout the course as students learn to use both hand and power tools in a safe and proper manner. Projects that are worked on in class will require students to perform a variety of tasks to complete each step in the planning, drawing, constructing and finishing stages. They will learn how to interpret project plans and be able to select the proper resources. During the construction stage students will also learn how their project design is impacted by social, ethical and sustainability considerations.
 
Students who have successfully completed Woodwork 9 will be able to work on more advanced projects than students taking this course for the first time.
 
Students are required to provide their own safety goggles/eye protection, hearing protection and tape measure.
 
 
APPLIED DESIGN, SKILLS AND TECHNOLOGY - DRAFTING 10
 
Students enrolled in the Drafting 10 course will be exposed to a number of different drafting styles ranging from hand drawn sketches to using Computer Aided Design (CAD). Throughout the course, students will work on understanding drafting terminology and learn to read and interpret a variety of drafting styles, including perspectives, mechanical drawings and architectural designs. Creativity is encouraged as we design projects and pay attention to factors that impact design such as social, ethical and sustainability. Students will be able to use the skills learned in class and apply them directly to the CNC Router, Laser Engraver, and the 3D Printer here at LDSS. Skills learned in this course are transferrable to many different occupations and career paths.
 
 
CARPENTRY AND JOINERY 11 (CJ 11)
 
Prerequisite: Woodworking 10 preferred
 
In the Carpentry and Joinery 11 course students are exposed to the WHMIS regulations and are trained to use the power equipment found in the woodshop. There is a large focus on safety and accident prevention during the first few weeks and these procedures are to be used throughout the course. During the production of projects students begin by interpreting technical drawings or producing design sketches. Students are then expected to complete projects using both hand and machine tools that use a number of different wood joints. Students take the WoodLINKS curriculum, which includes current industry trends as well as exposing them to vast amounts of information and resources on wood processing. Students are also encouraged to utilize the CNC Router into a part of one of their projects.
 
 
CARPENTRY AND JOINERY 12 (CJ 12)
 
Prerequisite: Carpentry and Joinery 11
 
In the Carpentry and Joinery 12 course students are exposed to the WHMIS regulations and are trained to use all the power equipment found in the woodshop. Students are expected to apply safe work practices when completing personal projects as there is a large focus on safety and accident prevention during the first few weeks and it is reinforced throughout the course. During the production of projects, students begin by interpreting technical drawings or producing design sketches and demonstrate proficiency in using a variety of measuring instruments, layout tools and mathematical techniques to solving technical problems. Students are then expected to complete projects that incorporate a number of different wood joints using both hand and machine tools. CJ 12 students are also exposed to working with engineered wood products and composite materials. The WoodLINKS curriculum incorporates current industry trends as well as exposing students to vast amounts of information and resources on wood processing and production techniques. Students are encouraged to utilize the CNC Router into part of one of their projects.
 
 
TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION 10 - DRAFTING & DESIGN (TED 10)
 
This is one of the fastest growing programs in technology education in B.C. It is an excellent course for both males and females. CAD is used in a wide variety of occupations including dress designers, fire departments, the forest industry, construction, as well as traditional uses in shops. You will learn the method of drafting most professionals use now. The material covered in the course includes drawing such objects as machine parts, house plans, and furniture on computers.
 
The course teaches you the fundamentals of 2 dimensional drafting through a series of 10 modules using Autocad. When the modules are completed you can choose to explore your own area of study from topics such as 3-D drafting, 3-D modeling and animation, and CNC router operation.
 
 
DRAFTING AND DESIGN 11 (DD 11)
 
Prerequisites: None
 
Computer Assisted Aided Drawing (CAAD) is one of the fastest growing programs in technology education in B.C. It is an excellent course for both males and females. Computer Assisted (aided) Drawing is used in a wide variety of occupations including dress designers, fire departments, the forest industry, construction, as well as traditional uses in shops. Students will learn the method of drafting most professionals use now. The material covered in the course includes drawing such objects as machine parts, house plans, and furniture on computers.
 
Students will have the opportunity to work on areas of special interest including, but not limited to, GIS (Geographcal Information Systems), 3D modelling and animation, CNC router operation, jewellery design, and house design.
 
The grade 11 course teaches the fundamentals of 2 dimensional drafting through a series of 10 modules using Autocad. When the modules are completed you can choose your own area of study from the list above.
 
 
DRAFTING AND DESIGN 12 (DD 12)
 
Prerequisite: Drafting and Design 11
 
In Drafting and Design 12 course you will build on your expertise in Autocad by creating three-dimensional models. When the modules are completed you can continue to develop and apply your skills using one of the additional software packages.
