Technology and Engineering
St. Matthew School's Technology and Engineering program has been growing over the last few years. Students are introduced to NXT Lego Robotics as part of the 5th grade curriculum, and continue with applications involving mathematics, programming, and design through 8th grade. We have a FLL Lego Robotics team that has participated yearly in local competitions.
The technology program at St. Matthew School is another area that has steadily grown over the years. 3rd and 4th grade support a 2:1 iPad environment, while 5th grade is 1:1 with laptops. 6th through 8th grade students have a dedicated technology class in which they have intensive focus on different areas of consumer technologies. The year is divided into trimester focus areas: graphing and spreadsheets, computer programming, multimedia creation, and keyboarding.
