Technology Education

  • TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION:

    Technology education in the Downingtown Areas School District incorporates problem solving. It involves students gathering, questioning, evaluating information, drawing conclusions, and acting responsibly on the results as they impact on the students’ environment. Technology education is an integral part of the education of each student. It is a comprehensive activity-based program that is concerned with understanding the evolution, application, and significance of technology. Students who enroll in any technology education course should be prepared to pay either a lab fee and/or for materials used in the course.
