Technology Education & STEM
The Technology Education program teaches students about the nature of technology and the human designed world. This is done through Technology Learning Activities (TLA) and principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), which allow the students to design and fabricate solutions in areas such as coding, robotics, structures, space, transportation, etc. The design challenges relate to real world situations. Students work cooperatively, using a design process to develop critical thinking skills as well as skills in material processing and safety. The 2020 NJSLS – Computer Science and Design Thinking (NJSLS-CSDT) will drive future modifications to this program, including game development, e-sports, digital design, and innovation lab.
These programs are delivered in a variety of ways in different environments, with all staff members assured access to the resources needed to facilitate appropriate technology integration.
