Course Description

“Engineering” or “science” are probably not the first words that come to mind when you think “skateboarding”. However, skateboarders require reliable, precisely-shaped skateboards for progressing as both athletes and artists.

In this course, students will turn seven sheets of Hard Rock Maple veneers into a custom-shaped skateboard deck. Along the way, students will learn how the features of skateboard decks affect skateboarding, design a board using CAD (Computer Aided Design), shape a foam mold, use atmospheric pressure to laminate their board, and learn basic woodworking skills.

At the end of the course, students will have a deck that is truly their own to skate! We will also provide trucks and wheels so students are ready to ride!

Spaces remaining: 3
