Technology at Hanford Christian School
The technology taught at HCS teaches K-8 students computer skills and the wise use of technology. Our mission is to teach students to apply an understanding of hardware and software as tools to communicate with, learn from, and utilize in the processing of information in a digital age.
Students employ software that enhances their knowledge of language, reading, science, social studies, and math programs, as well as learn basic computer literacy in typing, word processing, presentation, organization, and information management. Students gain a strong understanding of the relationships between science, technology, society, and the individual as they learn to communicate and collaborate through a variety of digital media, environments, and distances.
Jr. High students use Lego Mindstorms EV3® as a tool for understanding use of robotics in real-world situations and enhances their knowledge of programming. Students also develop a strong understanding of design tools and apply their knowledge to design the annual school yearbook.
