project lead the way
Project Lead The Way

The introduction of technology into the technology education classroom and laboratory requires a new facility design to fully incorporate the

Gateway To Technologycurriculum.

project lead the way opportunities for students
Project Lead The WayOpportunities for Students

PLTW in the Technology Education classroom and laboratory allows all students the opportunity to be exposed to pre-engineering courses, as well as receive college credit. With PLTW courses, students will be more prepared for their future after high school.

gateway to technology gtt
Gateway To Technology (GTT)
  • GTTis a state-of-the-art program in the Middle School Industrial Technology Education Department that incorporates national standards in science, mathematics, and technology for today’s grade 6-8 classroom and laboratory.
  • GTT consists of four instructional units that motivate and excite students to be creative and innovative during instruction and laboratory activities.
  • Each 10-week instructional unit enables students to accomplish goals of the project, while offering students learning challenges at all ability levels.
slide8

The Gateway To Technologyprogram consists of

four independent instructional units:

  • Design and Modeling: An introduction into the design process where students use measurement and descriptive geometry, learn sketching techniques, as well as create models and document ways to solve problems (Rube Goldberg).
  • The Magic of Electrons: Students learn through hands-on activities and projects about the science of electricity, circuit design, sensing devices, and the movement of atoms (PC Board Power Etching ).
  • The Science of Technology: This unit seeks to investigate how science has affected technology throughout history (Dragster).
  • Automation and Robotics: Students learn about the history and development of automation and robotics. This unit covers computer control systems, machine automation, energy transfer, and structures (Fischertechniks).

Our mission is to train and prepare students for their future by enhancing their personal growth and helping them become active partners in the transformation of the nation’s schools for an advancing technological society.

National Standards met: Standard 8 H,I Standard 9 I,K

Standard 17 I,M,O,P,Q Standard 18 J,L,M

Standard 19 M,N,O,P Standard 20 J,K,L,M,N

proposal objective
Proposal Objective

Our new design consists of four major objectives:

  • Allow for safer working conditions for all students and faculty
  • Create a dust-free room for projects and activities involving computers
  • Provide space for a first aid station and additional space for demonstrations and instructional materials, a dust collection system, and fire-safe rooms
  • Construct an educational environment that fosters the learning of skills and concepts that students will use in future life experiences
acoustics
Acoustics

Acoustics control noise for

students and faculty

  • Dust collector and air compressor in own room
  • Ceiling should have a minimum sound

absorption of 75%

  • Carpet eliminates floor-generated noises and reduces heating and floor maintenance
color
Color

The color of the classroom and laboratory

serves many purposes:

  • The room color must first give the student, the faculty, and the public a sense of safety. The room color must be simple and safety friendly. We suggest light blue because lighter colors make the room appear larger, and it is relaxing, soothing, and calm.
  • Painted safety lines on laboratory floor
  • Personal safety equipment is color-coded for easy visibility for students and faculty.
illumination
Illumination

Lighting is very important for learning

  • Natural lighting from five windows (two in classroom and three in laboratory) located six feet up from the floor.
  • Artificial lighting rating between 50-70 foot-candles for the classroom and 75-150 foot-candles for the laboratory.
  • Lighting is located directly above workstations and students’ desks to give the best possible lighting.
ventilation
Ventilation

Clean air is important to good health

  • Delta Ambient Air Cleaner

Item #: 12500160 $416.00 EA

  • Torit Cyclone Dust Collector,3 PH 208/230/640V w/ motor & magnet control

Item #: 12599377 $5665.00 EA

computer workstation design
Computer WorkstationDesign

Many activities now require the use of a computer. A well-designed workstation will:

  • increase comfort
  • reduce fatigue
  • increase productivity
safety equipment
Safety Equipment

Eye protection equipment

  • Use ANSI-Z87 with side shields or goggles when around small, flying objects.
  • Use splash-proof goggles when working with hazardous or mixing chemicals.
  • Use Z136.1-1980 eyewear when working with laser beams.
  • Eye wash station, First aid kit, and wash sink in laboratory

In conclusion, we believe that our facility design will allow for safer working conditions for all students and faculty.

Our goal is to construct an educational environment that fosters the learning of skills and concepts that students will use in future life experiences
