Technology is where nature’s design can be taken and repurposed using man’s design to suit our wants and needs. Students have the opportunity to learn about productivity software and Internet communications tools and how they can help them to better organize, share and track their work. In middle school, time permitting; students are introduced to other topics in technology such as 3D printing, robotics, programming, video game design and alternative energies. In high school, students have a more in depth experience with year long courses in web design, programming, robotics, video game design, digital media design and productivity or desktop publishing.
