Drafting and Design
The Drafting and Design area of Poquessing Middle's Technology Education Department introduces students to a form of graphic communication that involves the preparation of drawings needed to develop and manufacture products and structures. A basic introduction to architectural drafting includes floor planning and interior design. Computer Aided Drafting/Design (CADD) is used extensively at all grade levels.
Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students identify the many fields of drafting. A wide range of skills are explored from basic measuring and sketching to 3D computer modeling.
Poquessing Middle School's Design and Drafting program is an excellent experience for students who have a general interest in design or those who may be considering a career in technical fields such as engineering or architecture. Students may further extend their knowledge of these subjects with advanced CADD courses when they enter the high school.
