Engineering and Technology

Students will gain confidence using current and up-and-coming technologies, which will assist them in navigating an increasingly technological world. These classes will help students gain experience in fields they may wish to pursue in college. Our classes provide students with active learning situations where they are able to develop and practice their problem-solving skills through experiences in technology.
Junior Robotics 8-11 9:30 F Rm #35
Teacher: Tiffany Medcalf (Roark)
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 8 - 11
1.5 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $75.00
Use robotics to bring science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to life!

Students will be guided step-by-step through the building and programming of robot behavior. They follow up their prototype work with a robotics investigation in which the students experiment with the robot’s motors, sensors, and programming to learn how robots really work.


Marbleocity (STEM) 12-14 9:30F Rm. 30
Teacher: Allison Evans
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 12 - 14
1.5 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $90.00
Marbleocity introduces students to engineering principles and physics concepts with dynamic hands-on STEM model kits. Specific physics and engineering concepts are the focal point of each model and are taught in a fun and engaging way. The result is an awesome kinetic sculpture and new science insights!

Marbleocity (STEM) 9-12 11:00 F Rm. 30
Teacher: Allison Evans
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 9 - 12
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $90.00

Photography II Rm #
Teacher: Jessica Summers
Outside Work: Moderate
Prerequisites: Photography I or equivalent knowledge base.
Ages: 14 and up
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $60.00
This is a class for the budding photographer who already knows how to use their camera’s controls and understands what f-stop, shutter speed and ISO are. Students will decide on their own photography assignments with the goal of building a portfolio. They will learn to give and get constructive critique, develop their skills in lighting and composition and use photo-editing software to enhance their images.

Students need a digital SLR camera.



Photoshop I 14+ Rm #
Teacher: Jessica Summers
Outside Work: Moderate
Ages: 14 and up
1.5 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $70.00
Students in this class can opt to learn Photoshop or Illustrator or a bit of both. We will take you through different Photoshop/Illustrator lessons teaching basic tools and features moving into detailed projects like: photo manipulation, creating composite images, gaining a better understanding of composition and how to edit images in detail.
This class teaches important skills that may be beneficial when seeing employment and any creative career path. Photoshop & Illustrator are industry standard programs for not only photography but graphic design and marketing.


Photoshop II 14+ Rm #
Teacher: Jessica Summers
Outside Work: Moderate
Ages: 14 and up
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $70.00
Take your Photoshopping skills to the next level with new techniques, pro projects and learn how to really ‘wow’ with your Photoshop skills. Must have completed Photoshop I or know basic Photoshop tools.

Robotics 12-14 Rm #35
Teacher: Tiffany Medcalf (Roark)
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 12 - 14
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $70.00
Use robotics to bring science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to life!

Students will be guided step-by-step through the building and programming of robot behavior. They follow up their prototype work with a robotics investigation in which the students experiment with the robot’s motors, sensors, and programming to learn how robots really work. Students will then design and program their own robots to solve problems and complete challenges and competitions. We will finish the year with a battlebot competition.
