Grade 8 Technology

STEM 8 is a continuation of robotics learned in STEM 7.  Additionally, STEM 8 will introduce students to other technological applications and concepts. The class will incorporate a team approach, where students will work together to design, build, and test robotic equipment. Since robotics requires hands-on opportunities, this class will be project based. Grades for each project will be based on a rubric that will be given to each team before they begin their “build.”

In addition to robotics, students will also have an opportunity to take part in activities to familiarize them with computer programming. 

Students will:

  • Develop solutions through a systematic process that identifies the problem and refines ideas for solutions within the stated requirements

  • Individually, or in teams, incorporate design principles in the development of robotic prototypes given specific constraints

  • Share their creations with the school community

  • Work effectively with others from diverse backgrounds

  • Develop teamwork and leadership skills

  • Exercise the ability to lead or follow in a team environment

  • Learn and apply coding skills

All assignments and due dates will be posted on Google Classroom.

potential and prepare them to be responsible, contributing members of a diverse society.”
