Elective Course Descriptions

  • Anatomy & Physiology

    Students demonstrate an understanding of the structures of the body as a whole and the functioning of its chemical and physical systems.  Students interested in health sciences can benefit from the development of the technical skills & language that are a part of this course.  Students participate in laboratory exercises and use technical language in preparing laboratory reports.

    Health Science

    Students study the major systems of the body as well as mental health.  Students will also study introductory concepts of medical insurance, public health, medical terminology, and health science careers.  This course is designed for students with an interest in the health or medical field of study.

    Intro to Engineering Design

    Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects.  They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3-D modeling software and to use an engineering notebook to document the work.

    Principles of Engineering

    Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, and automation.  Students develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process, documentation, collaboration, and presentation.

    Computer Integrated Manufacturing

    Students discover and explore manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation, and then they apply what they have learned to design solutions for real-world manufacturing problems. 

    Anthropology

    Students will study, analyze, and discuss human origins, behavior, and differing cultural customs.  This course offers an introduction to Anthropology and two of its major sub-disciplines: physical anthropology and cultural anthropology. 

    MESA

    Students develop their math and science skills through academic, activity-based labs.  Students demonstrate appropriate study techniques and improve their reading and writing skills through interdisciplinary activities.  The activity-based curriculum enhances students’ confidence, team spirit, and academic excellence.  Students participate in college visitations, local and state competitions, and field trips.
