Technology education formally begins in 7th grade.  Students receive 20 weeks of technology instruction learning how technology applies scientific principles to improve the human condition. Students receive an additional 20 weeks of technology education instruction in the eighth grade. Students learn to use tools to change raw materials into useful products.  In addition students learn drawing techniques and learn to build and program robots using the Lego Mindstorms NXT kits.  Students also learn how to use the computer aided drawing software, Key Creator, to assist them in their drawings.

At the high school level students are are to take more specialized courses building upon the skills they learned in middle school.  Semester-long courses such as Architectural Drawing, Computer Aided Drawing, Robotics and Materials Processing have introductory courses and offer advanced coursework for students that want to continue that area of study. There is an advanced course for students interested in engineering, Principles of Engineering.  In addition, students can earn a credit in math or science by taking the STEM course, World of Technology.
