Working within the framework and aims of general education, Industrial Technology develops an appreciation of a variety of tools, materials, and processes. Industrial Technology courses provide students with real-world, hands-on learning experiences. Consumer values and leisure time pursuits are brought to the attention of students as they are soon to be active citizens, wage earners, and purchasers of the products of industry. All Industrial Technology courses are open to both girls and boys. By exposure to experiences designed to explore various trade, management, and entrepreneurial experiences, academically-oriented students have the opportunity to select Industrial Technology courses which will also be of value to them in their college careers. Courses in this department address all seven HHS Student Learning Expectations.
