The Lincoln High School iDesign program is a Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) series of courses that were launched in spring 2008. Students learn how to design projects in 3D computer software and then create jewelry, tools, toys and auto parts in wood, plastic and metal on manual and automated equipment.
The program was developed in partnership with the Sierra College Center for Applied Competitive Technologies (CACT). A $250,000 grant from the California Community College Chancellor’s Office developed this new Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machining program to prepare high school students for high paying manufacturing jobs in demand locally.
