Technology Education is an exciting combination of many subjects, popularly referred to as STEM: the integration of science, technology, engineering and math into our curriculum, rooted in the engineering design process. Tech Ed is a great opportunity to see and learn how all of these fields work.
7th & 8th Grade Focus:Seventh- and eighth-grade students each have one semester of Tech Ed with many engineering design challenges. Some of the most exciting include robotics with Lego Mindstorm robots or Sphero Robots, principles of space and flight, design of noCO2 race cars, construction of Rube Goldberg machines, basic woodworking, Prototyping, and beginning electronics.
