Industrial Technology Department
Industrial Technology Education is an integrated, experience-based instructional program designed to prepare students to be knowledgeable about technology - its evolution, systems, technologies, utilization, and social and cultural significance. It results in the application of mathematics and science concepts to technological systems in areas such as, but not limited to: construction, manufacturing, communications, transportation, biotechnology, and power and energy. Students are challenged to discover, create, solve problems, and construct solutions by using a variety of tools, machines, computer systems, materials, processes and technological systems.
Thus, technology education is a fundamental curriculum for all students, regardless of learning levels, career choices, or life aspirations. Students graduate from high school with the understanding of how technology affects daily decision making; with the ability to use processes and systems, along with a variety of tools and resources to solve problems; and with the ability to apply and interrelate concepts in science, mathematics, language arts, and social studies to address practical issues in a technological society. Industrial Technology Education teaches the concepts of tomorrow, that enable students to turn their vision into reality today.
Tomorrow belongs to those who effectively and creatively interact with technology today and dream of its possibilities for tomorrow.
