Franklin’s Career Electives are a great way to study a subject that might interest you as a future career. Taking one of these career-oriented electives will give you the basic information needed to succeed in the field, or in secondary education.
Introduction to Health Science
Interested in working in the healthcare field? Take our Nursing Assistant course and discover your future! Learn about the legal and ethical aspects of nursing, physiological and psychosocial aspects, and safety and emergencies. Prepare to work in a hospital, long-term care facility, or home setting. This course also prepares you for state certification and employment as a Nursing Assistant.
This course allows students to build a solid foundation in the fundamentals of game design and development. Students create an impressive portfolio of interactive, engaging games such as a classic two-player ping-pong game, a block-breaking action game, and a maze game with moving obstacles. Students learn the MMF2 language of events, conditions, and actions; game objects that track scores, lives, time, and more; and automated, random, and user-controlled movement.
