My Students

Our students compete at the local, state, and national level.

Middle-school students in our Technology Student Association (TSA) are learning to lead in a technical world.

Our students exemplify the following principles of leadership: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, and Encourage the Heart.

Here are a some of the categories our students compete in: Coding, STEM Animation, Invention and Innovation, Electrical Applications, Microcontroller, Problem Solving, Mechanical Engineering, CAD Foundations, Website Design, Dragster, Junior Solar Sprint, Tech Bowl, and Technical Design.

My Project

Students have several opportunities to learn about the engineering design process at our school. Inventions and Innovations is a 7th grade class, and Technological Systems is an 8th grade class. We also have a competition team for the Technology Student Association (TSA). Students will use Tinkercad and Thingiverse to find and modify 3D printing projects that are of interest to them.

By donating to this project, students will be able to use the QIDI Technology 3D Printer to make the creations they designed on Tinkercad, and take their creation home.

This project supports financial literacy, because we will be using software to calculate how many grams of filament is used in their print, how much the fillimiment costs per gram, and they will have a budget for their item.

Thank you for helping to bring the fun and hands-on learning to over three hundred students per year!
