  • Bishop's Robotics Club is an extra-curricular program open to all students.  Club members design, build, and program their robots to meet a pre-determined engineering challenge. The team competes annually in regional events to test the effectiveness of their robot against other students' and schools' designs.
  • Beginning in the 2016-17 school year, Bishop will launch its ACE (Architecture- Construction-Engineering) mentorship program with Torrance-based Del Amo Construction. This extra-curricular engineering program will be open to all students.
    • ACE's mission is to engage students and encourage their pursuit of careers in the integrated construction industry through mentoring. Students are assigned to teams and each team is overseen by industry mentors. The teams are configured to emulate an actual design team, with students guided through a mock design project by their architect, engineer, and construction management mentors. The mentors guide the students as they work towards a final project, introducing them to careers, industry vocabulary, and various roles companies play in the construction industry. ACE will run for the duration of the school year and student teams will meet for approximately 15 sessions, each about two hours after school. In addition to these sessions, the students will also participate in all-team activities such as "College Night" and field trips to construction sites.

  • Students in Bishop's year-long Architectural Design elective course utilize CAD (Computer-Assisted Design) software in our PC lab to create 2D or 3D models and drawings. Students read engineering drawings, and learn geometric dimensioning, technical calculations, engineering graphics, and mechanical design.
