  • “Just because something doesn’t do what
    you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.”

    Thomas A. Edison

    Technology education is the one class where
    students have an opportunity to use and experiment
    with the information they learn in the core classes. Students are
    challenged to think for themselves
    and use the knowledge they have as a platform for gaining
    new knowledge. This course is science based
    but requires some ability in reading, writing, and math.

    Please review
    the expectations and
    rules page
    as well as the projects
    page. This will give
    you an idea of what we
    do and how students
    benefit from this experience.
    "Education is the kindling of
    a flame, not the filling of a vessel."

    Socrates
