Applied Arts


Byron Center High School has one of the finest Applied Arts programs in the State of Michigan.  Our program, headed by Mike Merchant and Lary Shoemaker, focuses on Engineering as a process. This program wraps in concept, design, and manufacturing so that students can see the full process, rather than a design in theory that cannot be built.  

Courses include:

Introductory to Engineering & Technology

Drafting I

Drafting II

Drafting III

Electric Car



Electric Car is a program where students build, test, and race an electric car.  Their assessment is on the track!
