Tech.Ed – Metal Work

Metalwork 9 & 10

This is an introductory course in metal processing and metal machining, which emphasizes correct and safe procedures.  Assigned projects will familiarize students with the basic of metal working.  A notebook to assist learning of the techniques is an integral part of the course.  Shop clean-up and consistently high standards of safe work habits are an important part of the course.

Metal Art 10

This course works with the design process in a metal-oriented context.  Topics covered include ring making, copper working, metal sculpture and 2 and 3 dimensional designs in wire.  The lost wax process for casting a silver ring is mandatory project.

Jewellery 10

This course will introduce students to jewellery techniques. The design process will be an important part of the course. Projects may include: lathe turned stainless steel rings, silver band rings, and silver rings cast using the last wax process. Enameled copper jewellery Course includes projects that are specifically created to be used as Grad Portfolio Evidence in Arts & Design, Employability Skills.

Jewellery 11

This course will introduce students to Jewellery and art metal techniques or build on experience from previous courses. The design process will be an important part of this course. Projects may include; lathe turned stainless steel rings, silver rings cast using the lost wax process, copper or silver chains, enameled copper jewellery, brazed or welded picture frames and candle holders.

Jewellery 12

This course will introduce students to Jewellery and Art Metal techniques or build on experience from previous courses. The design process will be an important part of this course. If students have previous experience, projects may be self initiated. Projects may include; lathe turned stainless steel rings, silver rings cast using the lost wax process, copper or silver chains, enameled copper jewellery, brazed or welded picture frames and candle holders.

Metal Fabrication and Machining 11

The student is introduced to and gains practical experience on the following machines: lathes, milling machines, welding apparatus, sheet metal machines, grinders, polishers, and metal casting. Assigned and individually initiated projects will familiarize the students with the various processes.

Metal Fabrication and Machining 12

This course is a more advanced and involved continuation of Metal Fabrication and Machining 11. Students will cover additional topics in increased depth.

This course is designed to teach the principles of the technology of several metal and allied trades. These principles will be applied to practical situations in machine shop, welding, sheet metal, and foundry.   Use of the milling machine, large lathes, foundry, and welding equipment learned in Metal Fabrication will be emphasized. Computer-aided machining (CAM) will be introduced. Selected projects may be self- initiated. The work follows the general lines of Metal Fabrication and Machining 11 but more sophisticated operations are learned and required.   Work on the design, construction or modification of the schools electric racing cars is an important optional element of this course.
