Technology Education

Technology Education is an elective CTE program offered to students in both middle school and high school. Students learn important skills and knowledge for employment and post-secondary education in technology related fields such as engineering, architecture, design, and more. Technology Education students are encouraged to participate in the Technology Student Association (TSA).

Robotics is another important program weaved into Technology Education that is offered to all students starting in 3rd grade. Elementary, middle and high school teams participate in competitions at the regional and state level. Robotics provide students with a deeper understanding of different fields of engineering and programming through applying concepts to create a functional robot!
