Electronics & CAD 11-12


The objective of this course is to build upon your understanding of electronics, 3D modelling, programming and the design process. This course will start with some projects and activities to build a foundation. Afterwards, there will be opportunities for you to steer the focus of the course and design your own projects.

Weekly Report

In order to receive credit for the work that you do, you will need to fill out a weekly report at the end of the week. This will consist of a few sentences describing what you worked on and accomplished over the course of the work. You will be assessed based on the quality of your work, not necessarily the quantity of projects produced.

Student-Designed Projects

You will have the opportunity to design your own projects in this course. However, this does not give you a license to do anything you want. Before starting on a student designed project, you are required to fill out a proposal sheet and have it approved my Mr. Ross.

Clean Up

Every class, the 5-minute clean up bell will sound. All students are expected to stop their work and clean up. If you finish early, please help others to finish up before the end of class.


You will be working with expensive equipment in a shared space that is important to many people. I expect that you treat room and everyone in it with respect. You are required to work safely, clean up, and put in a consistent effort into your work. In exchange, I will try my best to make this course a meaningful experience.
