Technology & Innovation


How would you like to learn how to build a robotic car from scratch? How about testing the limits and range of a unique paper airplane, followed by a course that features an actual flight simulator? Would you be interested in working as a team during an engineering project design course?

If the true purpose of education is to foster the ability to critically think, analyze, explore, and create, than what better way
to attain this goal than to offer courses intentionally designed to do just that? The Technology & Innovation courses focus
on collaborative, inquiry-based learning, which will assist the students with the skills needed to be successful in high school
and higher education. St. Joseph High School partners with Milestone C for many of our technology courses.
