BALL CHARTER PARTICIPATES IN TECH 2018 AT STATE CAPITAL

May 16, 2018

Technology instructor Erin Sulivan and art teacher Maggie Mathenia along side students Maverick P. and Alexis P. were chosen to present at TECH 2018 at the Capitol on Thursday. The team showed off just a small bit about how students at SBCS use technology in school. The students demonstrated using Sphero robots to paint with in the style of artist Jackon Pollock. The students were also able to discuss with state representatives how they use the Sphero to draw and learn coding as well as create accessories for it using our school's 3D printer. TECH 2018 was meant as a day to show our state and local representatives just how we spend the funds that are allocated to technology in education and the need for increaed funding.  TECH 2018 also raised awareness of the critical role technology plays in preparing students to succeed in today's world.
