Technology Education

ImageThe Technology Education classes of today are not your father’s “shop” classes! Students can take courses that delve into the world of robotics, engineering design, and video production that can lead to internships and post-secondary degrees. Based upon the “Career Pathways” model, entering freshman can see early on the best classes to take if they wish to pursue a career in Engineering, Architectural Design, Graphic Design, Mechanical Design or Video Production.

Introductory level classes allow students to experiment in topics such as CAD, electronics, graphics and technological design, while advanced level classes offer a challenging curriculum for students interested in a career in the areas. These advanced level courses are offered on a rotating basis. During the junior and senior year, students in the career pathways model will be encouraged to participate in an internship or work-study experience to put these learned skills to use.

ImageCourses within Technology Education incorporate state of the art technology and current software used in the field, such as Solidworks CAD and the Adobe CS 5.5 Design Suite. As part of this career pathways model, students interested in the field of Graphics can take courses that will lead to Adobe Certified Expert. Courses in Robotics allow students to learn programming skills and compete in the VEX Challenge.

Students interested in Video Production can follow a sequence of courses that teach all of the skills necessary to work on a production team. The district television studio is the lab in which these students learn the skills while filming programs that air on Channel 26.

The possibilities to explore technology through hands-on applications are endless!
