    Within these units are a series of laboratory-based activities.  These activities allow the student to experience a logical study of concepts related to hands on problem solving activities, which relate to everyday life.  Within our 20 week class students will learn the skills that are the foundation of our Technology program in Rush Henrietta.  You will also gain a better understanding of what choices are provided in our high school programs.

    Each unit of study has three measures of evaluation

    1. Vocabulary, Research & Quiz
    2. Design Packet
