Using real world production projects to teach both the advanced manufacturing process and STEM concepts. We created a school based company, hired students and employees, design, prototype and mass produce products for sale.
Presentation Abstract In our presentation we will discuss our experienced with creating an advanced manufacturing center within our CTE school. Topics will include: integrating CTE labs using the advanced manufacturing process and large scale projects, integrating Science and Mathematics into large scale CTE projects. and teaching work skills demanded by our local manufacturing base as part of the AMTC
The Advanced Manufacturing Center took on the task of building 300 Replica Carronades of the carronades that were aboard the Brig Niagara during the battle of Lake Erie 200 years ago. We chose this project in accordance with our district wide and county wide celebration of the battle of Lake Erie Perry 200.
Goals and Objectives
Large scale project with Design, prototyping, Solid Modeling, CNC Machining, Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, repeatable and sustainable process control, Quality Control, as well as all associated Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
An essential component of the CT Advanced Manufacturing Institute is the integration of Academics into the process. Hands on application level questions hit directly on the Common Core Standards.
