• 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, OnShape, to assist them in their drawings.

    At the high school level, students take more specialized courses building upon the skills they learned in middle school.  Foundation courses such as Drawing and Design for Production, Robotics and Materials Processing prepare students for advanced coursework to continue in that area of study. There is an advanced course for students interested in engineering, College Principles of Engineering.  In addition, students can earn a credit in math or science by taking the STEM course, World of Technology.  Students can also work with plasma cutters and CNC machines in Manufacturing Systems and Product Design and Engineering.
