Middle School technology skills are integrated throughout the curriculum and are designed in collaboration with core subject teachers. Beginning in fifth grade, students focus on mastering introductory computer skills including basic productivity applications. More sophisticated digital literacy skills are introduced each year thereafter.
In technology classes, students design web pages, develop multimedia presentations, produce digital films, and write research papers. Digital citizenship and coding/programming skills are integrated into the technology program, as well as more specialized skills, such as computer aided design (CAD)/3D printing and robotics.
All students take a Makerspace/STEM class once per week, which is an area for students to create, design, tinker and experiment with science, engineering, and art. Students are encouraged to explore their creativity through hands-on projects designed for individual and teamwork.
