Making technology, (electronics, mechanics, programming, AI) creates a gateway for students to understand foundations and first-principles that enable innovation. You will design curricula and directly enable students to build significant historical inventions as well as their own, with long-term understanding of how and why. Rather than the typical fragmented experience of high school class, students’ essential skills and knowledge will develop through the lens of technology.
Tech and Society Lead
Technology does not develop in a vacuum. Social and historical context can propel and hinder the emergence of new technologies. Similarly, unintended consequences follow in the wake of inventions. You’ll help students understand the big picture of historical inventions and develop a sense of social ramifications as they build their identities as inventors.
