Technology


Our daily work with middle school students involves identifying and fostering their talents through technology. With an overarching theme of social action and self expression, the curriculum includes the use of blogs, 3D architectural design and printing, digital music creation and game design.  Students address a variety of social issues through these technologies and leave our program empowered by a greater understanding of self and society and the tools with which to express their talents. Below are the highlights from 2010-2012.  Feel free to leave comments on these posts-- students love getting them!
