I currently teach Mechatronics, Geometry in Construction, & Advisory. I Co-teach Geometry in Construction with the Construction trade's teacher, Paul Landwehr.   
 
Mechatronics is an introduction to Manufacturing class teaching the basics of Electricity, Mechanics, Hydraulic power, & pnuematic power combined with Smart sensors, PLC programming, and robotics.  
This class readies an individual for the National Certification SACA - Smart Automation  Certification Alliance.  It is a hybrid class with projects and online learning. We use the Amatrol/Labmidwest
online learning curriculum, https://www.learnamatrol.com/lms/,  along with various projects throughout the year.  

Geometry in construction includes working on circles, sectors, measurement, trigonometry, and percents.  In the house, we employ topics from the classroom to build a three bedroom house.

Here are some pictures from the classroom:   
The house is coming along!!  Electrical, and plumbing are done.  Sheet rock is complete with mudding.  Flooring, siding, interior woodwork is coming along and should be complete in May/June 2020

Mechatronics: Fall 2020 

Mechatronics is the introduction to manufacturing using electricity, Mechanical, pnuematic (air) and hydraulic (Fluid) powers connected to smart sensors and computers driven by programming decisions. 
We have access to Lab-Midwest's Hybrid model of instruction using Amatrol Trainers and online curriculum.  Projects, field trips, and 3-D printers, and post-secondary opportunities abound in this program.
