TIJ1OI - Grade 9 Open - Exploring Technology
This program gives the student who likes to "learn by doing" the opportunity to explore our more traditional tech facilities. Students learn metal machining while in the manufacturing facility as they make a project out of metal. In the construction shop students learn basic woodworking and electrical concepts while making neat projects. Automotive fundamentals are covered as students get to take apart and put back together a small 4 cycle engine in our Transportation Lab. This exciting course involves activity based learning while developing practical skills that students will have for the rest of their lives.
