This course will help students apply concepts learned in the computer networking and computer repair classes. Students will work on individual projects including developing software documentation, researching and testing software, and performing computer hardware maintenance. This course will combine extensive reading of technical materials with computer-based projects.

This course is designed for students who are proficient with the use of computer and software applications. Students will learn programming concepts such as: program design, computer logic, data flow, data manipulation, and program planning. Students will focus on applying these skills while developing 3D animations and interactive video games. This course uses a web-based curriculum with online assessments.


This course exposes students to general networking concepts such as routing, switching, wireless, security and other advanced technologies. Concepts are presented in the context of hands-on scenarios that students may encounter; from home and small offices, to more complex corporate models. This course can be used to help prepare students for the Cisco CCENT certification for entry network technicians.

This course is designed for students who are proficient with the use of computer and software applications. This course will cover the fundamentals of computer hardware and software. Students who complete this course will be able to describe the internal components of a computer, assemble a computer system, install an operating system, and troubleshoot using system tools and diagnostic software. Students will also be able to connect the computer to the Internet and share resources in a network environment. Additional topics covered include laptops and portable devices, wireless connectivity and basic implementation skills, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), security, safety and environmental issues, applied network configuration and troubleshooting skills, and communication skills.
This course helps students prepare for CompTIA's A+ certification.

Students will learn how to setup and maintain a computer and home network by learning skills such as performing hardware and software upgrades, setting up home wireless, and installing external devices such as printers and scanners. Students will also be exposed to working with authoring applications including tools to construct web pages, podcasts, and interactive animations.
This is a lab based course that uses a hands - on approach to introduce the basic concepts of robotics. Students will focus on the design, construction and programming of autonomous mobile robots using the VEX Robotic Design System. We will work in groups using previous knowledge in STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics while using the Design Process to solve problems, These problems are directly related to technology and will involve testing increasingly more complex mobile robots culminating in an end-of-year robot competition.
