Technology Education Labs at the Intermediate School Level

CCEF is proud to have funded a Technology Education Lab at all 10 intermediate schools in CCISD for a total of $300,000.

Robotics and Programming | Audio/Video Technology

Through Clear Creek ISD’s new intermediate school technology education courses, students will not only gain technical skills, but they will also gain the soft skills needed for success in today’s society. The courses are fundamentally based on the principles of exploration, collaboration, innovation, creation, and self-direction. These skills can be applied across multiple disciplines. Should students to go through these programs and decide to continue education related directly to course content, there are many advanced education and career opportunities available.

Robotics and Programming is a dynamic field involving the design, functional use and maintenance of robots. These machines are used in several capacities, including manufacturing, transportation, surgery, weaponry, safety, research and the mass production of consumer goods. Some other duties of both engineers and technicians include welding, installing safety systems, programming and reprogramming robots, reading and interpreting schematics, robot maintenance and repair, using hydraulic test equipment, failure analysis testing, robot installation and removal. Multiple career levels are available in robotics.
