7th grade technology

The 7th grade technology courses have recently wrapped up for this academic year at Kennett Middle School. In culmination of their course, Mr. Hardt challenged his students to research, design, and construct model homes. The students used modern design tools, such as the 3D modeling program Sketch Up, to draft their ideas then learned to use basic electric and hand tools to construct their models. This experience sought to translate directly to high school level building trades as well as architectural design programs in Career and Technical Education. This project also included a visit by an industry professional from the timber framing industry, Ansel Gifford of Walden Timberworks, as well as a museum style presentation to academic teachers and administrators. Reflective writing pieces indicated that students took away some valuable skills both with regards to the engineering design process as well as modern tool use. Congratulations to these Kennett Middle School 7th grade students!
