About 8th Grade Gateway to Technology

    This course takes students into the magical world of engineering where they design their projects on the computer, and then see those designs come to life in the wood-shop. The software we use (Autodesk Inventor) is the same platform used by professionals to create 3D images of buildings and even vehicles. Students will design and create an original puzzle cube, marionette string-puppet, along with many other hands on projects. Although the course title is the same as the 7th grade class, we do all new projects in Gateway to Tech 8.
