Technology

Technological innovation influences all areas of life, from the actions of individuals to those of nations. It addresses basic human needs and provides the tools and processes required for the exploration of both the known and the unknown world.

Programs in technological education involve an open, collaborative, activity-based approach to teaching that accommodates students’ interests, aspirations, and learning styles.

Communications Technology

Communications technology affects all aspects of our lives, from work to leisure. It extends our ability to communicate and is an important part of being technologically literate.

Students will work in the areas of TV/video and movie production, radio and audio production, print and graphic communications, photography, and interactive new media and animation. Student projects may include computer-based activities such as creating videos, editing photos, working with audio, cartooning, developing animations, and designing web pages.

Computer Engineering

This course examines computer systems and control of external devices. Students will assemble computers and small networks by installing and configuring appropriate hardware and software. Students will develop knowledge and skills in electronics, robotics, programming, and networks, and will build systems that use computer programs and interfaces to control and/or respond to external devices.

 

Construction Technology students

 

Construction Technology

Whether residential, commercial, industrial, or recreational, construction has always played a central role in human life. Through construction courses that incorporate learning opportunities outside school, students will learn about the tools, equipment, and processes required to design, construct, and maintain a variety of buildings and structures

Students will learn to create and read working drawings; become familiar with common construction materials, components, and processes; and perform a variety of fabrication, assembly, and finishing operations. They will use a variety of hand and power tools and apply knowledge of imperial and metric systems of measurement.

 
Technological Design model

Technological Design

To look at a skyscraper, a powerful automobile, a robotic assembly line, or a bridge linking two shores is to see the work of a technical designer. A designer’s role is to apply knowledge of materials, mathematics, trends, and fabrication methods to formulate or innovate products, services, and methods. The technologies and processes used to create design solutions may include both traditional and computer-based drawing methods and models, animations and simulations, and displays.

Students will research projects, create designs, build models and/or prototypes, and assess products and/or processes using appropriate tools, techniques, and strategies. Student projects may include designs for homes, vehicles, bridges, robotic arms, clothing, or other products.

 
Transportation Technology students

Transportation

Transportation affects our lives in a multitude of ways. We use cars for everyday purposes, mass transit to commute to work, and flights and cruises for holidays. Transportation systems move raw materials to manufacturers and finished products to consumers locally, nationally, and globally. Transportation technology courses provide students with opportunities to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to service, repair, and modify vehicles and vehicle systems.

Student projects may include the construction of a self-propelled vehicle or craft, engine service, tire/wheel service, electrical/battery service, and proper body care.
