Central High School of Clay County Robotics/TSA

Robotics Club consists of members who have participated in robotics in previous years as well as students taking the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) engineering classes.

Our engineering program consists of two foundation courses: Introduction to Engineering and Principles of Engineering.

Introduction to Engineering: Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects like designing a puzzle cube or improving an existing product. Students are given the opportunity at the end of the school year to credential as an AutoDesk Inventor user. (CAD-Computer Aided Design program)

Principles of Engineering: Students explore a broad range of engineering topics including mechanisms, strength of structure and materials, and automation, and then they apply what they know in various projects throughout the year.

Students can then take one or two of the specialized courses Computer Integrated Manufacturing or Digital Electronics.

Computer Integrated Manufacturing: Students discover and explore manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation, and then they apply what they have learned to design solutions for real-world manufacturing problems.

Digital Electronics: Students explore the foundations of computing by engaging in circuit design processes to create combinational logic and sequential logic (memory) as electrical engineers do in industry.
