The shop program begins in the 6-7s and prepares students to be competent in the basic measurement and design skills of the industrial arts. They gain experience in the practical use of hand and power tools while working with wood, Plexiglas, and other materials. Students plan using paper and pencil as well as computer design programs. Once competent in basic techniques, students may choose to develop their own constructions, work from models, and integrate technology to animate projects. The Shop Show, a yearly exhibit of projects, is a much-anticipated event.
