    Instructor:  Mr. Kenneth Rhuems and Ms. Shannon Hill

    The purpose of this 6th, 7th, and 8th grade 9-week course is to introduce RMS students to technology education. The class is designed to allow students to explore many aspects of technology and discover personal interests, aptitudes, and abilities. Students will have the opportunity to work on various hands-on projects throughout the nine weeks. The class will be taught in two formats: Lab based activities and modular activities. Students will have the opportunity to explore many different technologies and activities; this can be used for information when the student enters High School. This could help determine what vocational or technical are the student may be interested in.

     

    Lab based activities: Students will be working in groups and individually on numerous activities and projects.
