Technology Engineering & Design
In the 7th grade, students will study communication technology and transportation technology. In the area of visual communication, students will learn how to draw 3 dimension drawings. Using technical drawing skills, students will design, build, test, and race a model co2 car during the transportation unit of study. Additionally, students will develop an awareness of how transportation systems impact people, society, and the environment.
In the 8th grade, students study transportation, communication, manufacturing, and construction technology. This course prepares students for the engineering section on the Science & Engineering MCAS. Through hand-on projects in each area of technology, students develop technological literacy. Projects may include technical drawings, model structures, house designs, and product design.
