CTE Lab

3D Printer

The CTE Lab has a Makerbot Replicator 3D Printer. The 3D printer was made possible with donations from KNW and Lyons Manufacturing. The 3D printer is used by drafting students to allow them to print objects that they design in a modeling software program on the computers. The students from the Entrepreneurship class also run a school business selling prints from the printer.

Green Screen

Green screen or chroma key is a special effects technique that allows students to layer or composite two or more images/videos on top of each other. The technique allows students to remove the green from the video and layer it on another video. Students use the green screen to create weekly and monthly newscasts.

Tricaster

A Tricaster is a multi-camera production system that allows students to create profession videos in the classroom and at events. Using the Tricaster allows students to add graphics, titles, virtual sets, use the green screen, and multiple cameras. Students use the Tricaster to create weekly and monthly newscasts. Students also video stream live events, such as graduation, sporting events, and assemblies.
