Education can no longer ignore or omit technology from the students curriculum. For Chattanooga to provide a qualified workforce, technology must be part of the education process. We will share recent additions of technology education in our local schools.
The presenters are:
Bricks in Black – Robotics Team – A local robotics team comprised of 6 homeschooled boys (age 9-14) and a robot named EdbotII. Bricks in Black is a FIRST LEGO League Team. FIRST LEGO League’s mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders.
One-to-One – A pilot program in Hamilton County Schools that is piloting the use of iPads or other Tablets as the district inches forward on its One-to-One technology initiative. This program, implemented at 6 schools, is funded by the Benwood Foundation and the Public Education Foundation.

Principals, teachers and students will share their experience regarding this program.
