PRODUCT INNOVATION & ARCHITECTURE DRAFT

The Adolfo Camarillo Architecture Pathway will give students an understanding of architecture and the many applications architecture has in our daily lives.The Architecture Pathway is a cross- curriculum collaboration between the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM), all of which play an integral role in the overall field of architecture. Class projects include “real world” design projects inspired by guest speakers, industry field trips, possible internships, work experience, and opportunities for employment. Students will have first-hand experiences in thinking, designing, building, and creating prototypes. Students will also have an opportunity to receive an “Honors Cord” upon graduation – after passing the two core pathway classes.

The Product Innovation and Design Pathway gives students the opportunity to express their creativity by designing projects using real-world tools and technologies. Students will learn to think as designers through project-based learning, presentations, discussions, and critiques. This course incorporates the full power of “STEAM” – a cross-curriculum collaboration between Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Students will use and learn various 3D computer programs, tools, and machines for designing, rendering, inventing, model-making, CAD, 3D printing, 3D modeling, lasers, manufacturing, and development. This integrated, immersive, multi-year sequence of career guidance, coursework, and work-based learning gives students knowledge and experience for a competitive advantage in their career. Teacher, Peter Wachtel
