Going from Zero to 60 in Design and Technology
By the spring of 2014, Chatham had identified a critical need: It did not have a dedicated design and technology program in its schools. Since then, the district has built a K-12 design and technology program, featuring weekly classes for all students in grades K-5, a middle school program with six different courses, and a set of high school course progressions in both design and technology, and computer science. This presentation will focus on how Chatham secured funding and staffing for its programs, built its curriculum, and continues to expand this important area of study for students.
