Students learn agriscience technology as it applies to the agricultural industry, food animals, wildlife, pets and plant science. Plant production procedures are taught in the BMS greenhouse. In addition, a 600-gallon aquiculture fish tank provides students with experiences in modern day fish production. Students also acquire skills in hand tool processes by building woodworking projects in the shop.
Students develop skills in touch typewriting and correct manipulation of the computer keyboard. Students will also develop skills using word processing and learn to type personal and business letters, outlines, manuscripts, and tabulated reports.
Students explore areas of technology in order to discover technical abilities and career interests. The elements of technology, including tools/machines, materials processes, energy, and information are studied. The impact of technology is related to future decisions and consequences. Skills in the use of technological tools and systems are taught through activities including lab safety, architectural drawing, bridge design and testing, electricity and electronics projects, model rocketry, and mouse trap and magnetic levitation vehicles.
