My Project

Part of our technology plan involves a re-branding of our school, which involves redesigning the school website, creating new logos, creating promotional videos and videos for social media, and more. As a school, we are moving in a new direction and want to share our successes and vision with our community.

These tasks are pushing some of our current technology to the limits, but with a powerful laptop, our re-branding efforts will be a success.

With a new laptop, students will be able to do video and graphic editing, 3-D modeling, and prepare projects for 3-D printing. Our existing Chromebooks are great, but they simply cannot handle demanding tasks and cannot run the necessary software for our 3-D printers.

Grades 6-8
