While this course is not math-intensive, it is consistent with a freshman-level engineering course and teaches valuable skills for high school students in any grade. Students will be required to read and interpret fully and partially dimensioned drawings and apply geometric relationships (e.g., parallel, perpendicular, tangent, concentric) to define sketches and features associated with solid models. Students who have not completed Algebra 1 are encouraged to take it concurrently.

Students will learn concepts that are commonly taught in the first year of a collegiate engineering curriculum, including:

  • reading and interpreting dimensioned drawings
  • modeling parts with an understanding of design intent
  • using standard CAD tools to create 2D sketches
  • using standard CAD tools to create 3D geometries
  • evaluating physical properties of modeled parts
  • generating engineering drawings from 3D parts

Technical Requirements: SolidWorks is provided through Catapult Engineering Academy, and the cost is included in the course fee.  SolidWorks only runs under the Windows 10, 64-bit operating system.  It will not run on a Mac unless there is a Windows partition or a virtual machine in place. All Catapult courses require a high speed internet connection.
