Grades 9-12 /1 Semester—1.0 credit

This is an entry-level course of study designed to acquaint the student with the small four- and two-cycle gasoline engines used to power a variety of equipment.  Ranging in size from 4 to 25 horsepower, most of these engines power outdoor power equipment but are also used on construction and recreational vehicles, and a host of other equipment requiring portable rotary power.  The student will learn hands-on skills of diagnosing related engine failures.  Students will also develop the knowledge and skills to repair a small gasoline engine and will build a functional go-kart.  Students will follow standards set by SkillsUSA and the National Outdoor Power Equipment Association as they apply STEM concepts in the automotive classroom.
