Fort McMurray Composite High School Fabrications courses will provide students with basic information on Fabrication and Processing of metal construction, fastener descriptions, processing descriptions, safety and WHMIS requirements, metallurgy history and modern theory, basic tools and an intro to Oxy/Cet. Fusion, Cutting and Braising. In our senior module students begin with basic electric fusion and plasma arc separations
Our Fabrications 10-20-30 courses will also align and integrate other school curricula, such as math, sciences, history and computer literacy into its basic platform as much as possible.
I will personally evaluate student character values in the shop environment on a weekly basis and if possible support a teacher/student/parent network for evaluation outcomes (an example of a student evaluation sheet will be posted on the school website. A character evaluation sheet will be sent home weekly, signed by a parent or guardian then returned to school). During our Fabrications courses I will be weighting a substantial portion of the students final grade mark on their character evaluations. The reasoning behind character evaluations stems from my years as a trades person and the knowledge of how important it is to carry good work ethics and personal values into a shop/trade environment.
If there are any questions or queries please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the school office at (780) 743 5800.

9 through 12 - 21st Century Skills / Specialization
At the high school level the focus can be either on introductory or a deeper understanding of a specific skill set; i.e. programming or mechanical design. Our Composite Robotic/Electronics/Mechatronics programs will include the development of 21st century skills; teamwork, problem solving, project based leadership, communications. The type of hardware we choose to showcase will be dependent on what paths our students choose to learn. Robotics to specialize in concepts like programming, parametric solid modeling, electronics, advanced machining, etc., while electronics can focus on Automotive essentials and audio equipment or the base solid state programmable platforms and the integrated circuitry (repair, build, and program).
