MCAS Testing At The High School
Last week the high school 10th graders were part of a
highly successful computer based testing experience. The Digital Learning team
and High School Staff and Administration have a lot to be proud of as we
implemented this new testing requirement seamlessly within the school. Many
thanks to all that supported this project.
Student Tech Program
Students are working on developing a “Stair Climbing”
robot project and will look forward to presenting their project at an upcoming
technology conference in the fall. Students are also exploring the Unity Game
Programming Engine to create their own games. Keep an eye out for videos
exploring these topics in the near future.
