Thank you for visiting Mr. Schopf's teacher page. Below you will find a link to my Back To School Night video message as well as the course descriptions of the classes I teach.
6500: TECH ED (.5 credit)
Designing and building your own creation with your own hands is one of the most gratifying experiences one can have. In Tech Ed 1, you will explore the concepts of 3D modeling, engineering, materials processing, photography and metalworking while creating a personalized project. Our rigorous pace will show you just how productive you can be even in unfamiliar surroundings and how rewarding it is to try new things. The focus of this class changes multiple times within the semester keeping things fresh and interesting for all students. This is an excellent course for surveying the other various Technology Education classes offered here at BASH.
6531: TECH DRAWING (1 credit)
Further your skills in SolidWorks and 3D design as you use the Technical Design Process to create solutions to exciting challenges within this class. Understand how 3D assemblies allow you to become more efficient in the building of your design while saving time, energy and supplies. Explore some of the more specialized aspects of 3D modeling as you work collaboratively with your classmates. You will design and build a personalized creation that you will be able to take home and use and with proper care could last you a lifetime. This class will also help prepare you for success in one of our advanced offerings. Many of our Boyertown alumni have returned to tell us that their enrollment in this class helped them to be successful in a variety of engineering majors at the college level.
6533: INTERIOR DESIGN (.5 credit)
Have you ever watched a home remodeling show and wondered how they generate those 3D computer simulations of the new plan prior to the demolition? In this class, you will have the opportunity to learn the basics of architectural design with an emphasis on the 3D modeling of the structure’s interior spaces. From basic interior design principles to advanced concepts such as 3D walkthroughs and importing custom materials, this class will provide you with the same skills that are used by the professionals who work on TV shows like Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop, Love it or List and Curb Appeal. This class is an excellent opportunity to further your abilities in preparation for our other course, Architectural Design.
