Biosystems Mechanics & Engineering
BIOSYSTEMS MECHANICS & ENGINEERING
Quarter Course (1 unit)
All of agriculture is dependent on mechanization and technology. The Mechanics and Engineering course is designed to teach basic physical science skills in relation to agricultural engineering. In addition it provides for the development of general mechanical skills that are required in all areas of agricultural industry. Typical instructional development of general mechanical skills that are required in all areas of the agricultural industry. Typical instructional activities include hands-on experiences in developing research projects to examine ways to utilize agricultural crops in unique ways, to include, the development of biofuels and other alternative energy sources and to discover new uses for agricultural products. Students will be involved in design and fabrication projects involving wood, metal and plastics. Energy and environmental projects will also be implemented that will utilize real life situations relevant to agricultural industries. In addition, students will participate in personal and community leadership development activities, plan and implement a relevant school-to-work transition experience, and participate in FFA activities.
