Mr. Gardiner's Technology Class
Technology at Ware Academy is implemented into many areas of each student's curriculum. It provides each student with the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful throughout school and beyond. In technology class, students begin with basic keyboard and mouse skills in Kindergarten until they find themselves studying and utilizing audio / video production, 3D modeling and animation, and programming in the Middle School. Each year students continually build upon the previous year's knowledge in order to push their own abilities and truly take advantage of what these amazing tools can offer.
Expanding Our Knowledge
This year, students in the 8th grade have begun studying physical science through 3D modeling and animation using Blender, a free open-source application. Students are studying "Rigid Body Animations" by creating physical simulations like the one to the right.
