    Diane Bolger- Business Education

     

    21st Century Experience

     

    The 21st Century Experience will take students on a tour of multiple projects geared toward Technology Education and Computer Science. Students will explore, research, and build hands-on projects from topics including Sky Scrapers, Human Anatomy, Projectiles and more. Students will also explore various computer coding languages, program simple commands and games, and discuss concepts related to a global digital society.

     
    This course is taught by two teachers.  The following is Ms. Bolger's section of the class:
