The Technology Education Department

  • Welcome to the Technology Education Department!

  • In this hands-on course, students develop and utilize problem-solving skills as they move through the engineering design process. Through collaboration, students identify and produce solutions to real-world problems. Each grade level focuses on a different set of problems that coincide with the engineering and technology standards for that grade. Topics include 21st century life and career skills, higher order thinking, communication, presentation, and exploration of personal aptitude, interests, and goal setting. Students apply the engineering design process through building and testing wood bridges, rockets, and earthquake structures. Career research is utilized to help students identify future career paths along with mapping out potential high school coursework plans.
