It is my hope and dream that Pine Valley would become known for having one of the best technical education programs in the Bay Area and beyond. The aim of the technical education program is to see students become excited and engaged in science, technical education, engineering, art, mathematics, and medicine. I believe this can best be achieved through hands-on, project based learning.
The projects that we do in the class do come with some cost. While I try my best to keep the costs as low as possible, it is still necessary to offset these costs through parent and community donations.
I am asking for a recommended donation of $30 from Tech Exploration (Wheel) students and $50 from Advanced Tech 1 students. All funds will go directly towards the Technical Education Class at Pine Valley Middle School. Funds will be used for such things as:
- Model Rockets that students can build and launch
- 3D Printing Materials
- Soldering Materials
- Circuit Boards
- Batteries to power our projects
- Updating our flight simulator software
- First aid training materials
- Creative Makerspace Materials
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of this request,
