The goal of Technology Education is to promote technological literacy. Students will recognize the value of an Engineering Notebook to document and capture their ideas. Students are exposed to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) principles through a variety of hands on activities.
The student's experience in the production lab or woodworking lab is like a traditional vocational “shop” where the students explore woodworking, layout, measurement, design, and laboratory safety. The students will learn techniques that will last a lifetime as they learn to work with hand tools and machines.
Specific safety instructions and general safety rules will be provided to all students to ensure understanding and safe operation of tools and equipment.
