The exciting worlds of technology, machines, and computers can be explored through the Hempfield Technology Education Department. Through a variety of courses, students gain valuable exposure to problem solving, making career choices, and developing life-long skills. The program is designed for and around the individual learner. We teach for the success of every individual, helping him/her meet individual needs, interests, and career objectives.
In Grade 7, students take "Exploring Technology", which introduces students to the evolution of technology and its basic systems of bio-technology, communication, construction, manufacturing, and energy, power, and transportation systems. Students are introduced to KeyCreator and Print Shop software through hands-on activities that require students to work both cooperatively and independently.
Technology education continues in 8th grade with "Applying Technology", which prepares students to expand on the basic technology concepts and skills acquired in seventh grade. Students continue to develop problem-solving skills through hands-on activities using KeyCreator and Print Shop software.
Once at the high school, students are encouraged to elect any of the technology education courses listed to the side. The teachers in Hempfield's Technology Education Department are eager to help students become successful in today's technological society. The program has a tradition of excellence that offers all students the opportunity for exciting and rewarding experiences. Technology Education truly is for everyone!
