No prior experience or knowledge about computers to be successful in this class.

We will focus on Hardware, Software, Operating Systems, Networking, CyberSecurity, and Databases, as well as Mobile App Development, Microsoft Office 2016 (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint). Programming will be done in JavaScript and SQL in the first year. Our focus will be on creating “real world” solutions for our school and community.

Students will have the opportunity to earn CompTIA A+, Microsoft Office Specialist. Emphasis will be placed on developing a broad Technology Based Portfolio which students can use to advance academic and employment careers. And, no modern technology class can be complete without developing creative and critical thinking skills while considering the social and ethical implications of technology. What is the difference between information and data? Can we predict the impact of new technologies? What can my bank/school/hospital do with my personal information? How does the Digital Divide affect economic development? We want to do more than hack away at our keyboards or crimp Cat 6 cables. We want to use our Computer Technology knowledge for good.

The R10 Tech Building Trades program is designed to introduce students to the skills necessary to succeed in the construction industry.  Students gain practical hands-on work experience both in the R10 Tech Building Trades shop and on job sites in the community. Students from Building Trades may join Skills USA to enhance their leadership skills and compete with students from other schools, both in-state and nationwide. 

Building Trades students learn both carpentry and masonry skills with the inclusion of a four-week unit in masonry.  Together, both areas offer entry level skills and experience for a career in the construction trades or for further education in community college programs.


Students that successfully complete two years of Building Trades will have the basic carpentry skills necessary to work successfully in the field of carpentry. With this foundation, they should be able to advance quickly with work experience and professional guidance on the job site.
