  • 6th Grade: Introduction to Technology: We will explore alternative energy sources and learn about electricity and electronics. What is problem solving? Students will be learning basic wooodworking skills by making a small project.  They will be making a lamp from a recycled glass quart size jar.  They will learn how to wire the lamp so it really works!

    7th Grade: Inventions and Innovations: How do designers make products on the computer and then test them ?  We will learn how and make a CO2 powered race car from a block of wood.  How do engineers design bridges? On the computer and then build a model to test, we will too.  We will innovate using 3-Dimensional drawings.

    8th Grade: Technology Systems: How does an airplane fly? What is the science behind the design? By designing a 3-D model, making it by hand, and testing it in the wind tunnel, we will find out.  What are alternative energy sources for cars? We will research, and make a solar car model to race and find out the technology behind the science of solar cars.
