The New Technology
Mr. Steven Schellenberger and Mr. Jeff Totsch
The introduction of technology into the technology education classroom and laboratory requires a new facility design to fully incorporate the
Gateway To Technologycurriculum.
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.
four independent instructional units:
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
Our new design consists of four major objectives:
Acoustics control noise for
students and faculty
absorption of 75%
The color of the classroom and laboratory
serves many purposes:
Lighting is very important for learning
Clean air is important to good health

Item #: 12599377 $5665.00 EA
Many activities now require the use of a computer. A well-designed workstation will:
Eye protection equipment
Back of 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
