We are excited about our CTE TED (Technology, Engineering and Design) courses' curriculum that has exciting hands-on project based STEM based lessons and Real-World simulations in the tech world. Lets explore, do and be at our best! Looking forward to another opportunity to develop students interest in STEM based career pathways while having fun learning all at the same time!
Each class will explore various types of technology areas, practice the process used to design and develop new or improved products (drawing techniques, Engineering Design Process...and so much more!). Opportunities to express your innovative, creative and inventive skills are provided through classroom activities and culminating activities which include one home project. All other activities are completed in class. Some donations of consumables are asked to enhance our project capabilities.
Looking forward to a great year!
