Technological Education provides students with confidence, abilities and the opportunity to be successful in any situation.
When we learn to build or fix things, we develop a sense of independence.
Understand principles of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
Students learn better with hands-on, project-based learning. Students must understand the basics of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) if their projects are to succeed. These projects bring the Math and Science curriculum to life for students.
Learn the value of perseverance
In Tech class, perseverance is encouraged. There’s more than one way to get the job done.
Helps students find their strengths
Students learn to be creative and innovative in Tech classes. There’s nothing like taking an idea or concept and making it a reality.
Explores the skilled trades
Stats Canada has estimated that one million skilled trade workers will be needed by the year 2025. This will be the largest sector for employment in the near future. Technological skills are important for careers in engineering, design and business. Many high school graduates claim that their Tech class was a critical part of their education.
