Space, Technology, and Robotic Systems AcademyThe STARS program is a way for students to put their creative skills to work in the exciting world of engineering. The focus of the program is pre-engineering, applied to the aerospace industry. Students take the same English, Math and Science classes, plus a technology elective:
In 10th grade, students learn the process for making new products and are introduced to computer-aided machining in Engineering 1: Design.
In 11th grade, students take Engineering 2: Electronics and Robotics. They learn about electric circuits, electronic components, computer programming and design and build their own robots.
Finally, in the 12th grade, students learn more about manufacturing and solve real-world problems while taking ROP Advanced Drafting/Manufacturing.
