Tech + Design for Middle School is a fun, project-based, collaborative class designed to introduce students to a variety of 21st-century skills that will help them on their journey to the Upper School and beyond. We explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math and their interrelated significance through hands-on activities like Programming with Scratch, Alice and App Inventor, Engineering Design Challenges, 3D Design and Printing, and Global Collaboration projects just to name a few.
Tech + Design prepares students to excel in our Innovation Studio by guiding them through projects that let them explore software, hardware and critical thinking exercises. Creativity and collaboration are key components of activities. Students are gradually exposed to technologies and design approaches that can be used as tools inside the classroom and out.
