TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION DEPARTMENT CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Technology Education is the means by which we teach students the Technology and Engineering components of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education which is found in the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Science and Technology. Understanding technology and its usefulness is essential for success in our rapidly changing world. Teamwork and problem solving are stressed as students pursue meaningful, real-world tasks that build a strong foundation for the practical application of technology. Technology Educations includes the study and use of computer technology, tools, machines, materials, as well as the application of mathematical and scientific principles.
The middle-level program offers exploratory courses in seventh and eighth grade. This program exposes students to four areas of technology: communications, manufacturing, construction, and transportation. Learning activities may include, product design and production, audiovisual productions, structural engineering, vehicle aerodynamic/hydrodynamic design, principles of flight, and water transportation.
