• Technology: Grades 6, 7, & 8

    Teacher:  Ryan Henson

    6th Grade: Exploring Engineering & Technology
    7th Grade: Inventors & Innovations
    8th Grade: Technological Systems

    The goal of these courses is to provide all students with an introduction to the principles of Engineering & Technology and their place in the modern world. They will also help students to use technological systems effectively in their lives, thus providing a foundation for successfully integrating their own interests with potential careers with the resources of a technological society.

    These technology classes introduce the engineering design process (or cycle) to students. Students work through their own design cycle while looking at technological impact on society.
    Each section reinforces the areas of math, science, social studies, and language arts through practical application and/or hands-on activities. Exposure to Engineering and Technology related careers, work ethics, and leadership skills will be important components in this course.

    At the end of this course, students will understand how engineering & technology impact them, the world around them, and careers available to them in the field.
