Technology Education offers a program which provides both an in-depth background in technology and technical skills as well as courses for students with general interest.
The courses in technology provide students with a thorough background in most technical skills, if they have an interest in technical training. Students who plan on a technical or engineering career should take introductory and advanced courses in Technology Education. Courses are delineated in the Bacon Academy Program of Studies.
All advanced, sequential courses in Technology Education require teacher approval. Students must have the instructor sign their course selection sheet. Teacher approval criteria is:
- Safety-the student must have displayed in the introductory course that he/she has followed all safety rules and is not a danger to him/herself or anyone else.
- Academic Achievement-the student must have displayed in the introductory course that he/she has achieved the necessary skills that are required to be successful in the advanced course. A 70 or better is required.
- Effort and Attitude-the student must have displayed in the introductory course that he/she has shown the required effort and attitude necessary to be successful in the advanced course.
Please visit the Bacon Engineering web site for detailed information, rubrics and assignments in various courses related to engineering.
