Our Technology Education program is designed to increase students' technological literacy with interactive hands on learning activities. We also encourage them to develop higher order thinking skills through the application of knowledge, creativity, and resources to solve problems. Technology Education also strives to bring career awareness and information about a wide variety of technology related careers into the learning environment. In achieving these goals, the course provides theoretical and practical instruction that is in accordance with Virginia State Standards of Learning competencies with a strong emphasis in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
Here at Stone Hill Middle School we offer Technology Education through our STEM labs in two different classes: 7th grade and 8th grade. Where the 7th Grade Technology Education class is a require half year elective for all students and the 8th grade program is full year elective. New this year is our full year High school level Robotics class (only offered for 8th graders), which uses the VEX Robotics platform to teach engineering design design, and programming.
