555 – TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION (Required)
Grades: 7 or 8
Technology Systems is designed to introduce students to systems and processes to develop an understanding of the impact of technology on humans, the environment, and the global community. By investigating systems through their function, design, and development, students will understand what systems are, why they are developed and how 'systems thinking' can be used to describe them. Students engage in activities and experiences where they evaluate the impacts of technology in order to learn problem-solving skills and the reinforcement of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts.
