For the first semester of Computer Aided Design I believe this is valuable for my future because we learn about different engineering software. The project that I am submitting as an artifact for Computer Aided Design had the following learning objectives of building a wooden box, made with the help of a CNC machine to fit the dadoes and rabbets. And the solar oven should be able to increase by 15 degrees Celsius. These link back to the course learning objectives by using a CNC machine and MasterCam.
The project was about a solar oven and it required me to work with my partner to create a box that works. The process I went through to do this project and meet the learning objectives first started with making a design of our box then cutting the wood and finally putting it into a working oven. Throughout this process listed above I have realized that I learned how to use different engineering applications. I learned that I can learn new things.
The Two School Wide Learning Outcomes I demonstrated in this artifact are mastering skills needed in career and college and applying technological skills for the 21st century. I have demonstrated mastering skills needed in career and college because if I wanted to I could explore that as an option. The Second SLO I demonstrated was applying technological skills because we need to learn different software. I could have improved the following SLO better by working differently and trying.
Overall the most important things I have learned this class year are being able to work with heavy machinery, and to work with engineering software. These skills I have learned in this class will help me in the future in case I wanted to do something with engineering.
