Grade 8 Technology
Eighth Grade Technology is a combination of engineering technology, mechanical/
electronics technology and digital photography. Students are required to design and
construct an island project, paying close attention to mechanical systems. Students also
participate in an introductory course in digital photography and a small engine and power
module that involves the restoration of a Vintage scooter.
