8th Grade Computer Aided Design

  • Computer Aided Design is the NEW 8th grade robotics course and we are really excited for this opportunity.

    Students will have the opportunity to earn 0.5 High School credit and to earn the Autodesk Fusion 360 Certified User Certification

    We will be using Autodesk Fusion 360 to learn 3D design
