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.
The mission of the Hempfield Technology Education Department is to ensure that its students receive a well-designed, comprehensive education that will assist them in leading constructive lives and in achieving their personal and professional goals within the context of an ever-changing, technological society. This mission will be achieved through modeling for and striving to develop in our students strong theoretical, technical, and practical competence; appropriate behavior; appreciation for diversity; high standards of ethical behavior; and a commitment to lifelong learning.
