Classroom Curriculum and Activities:

Middle School Tech Ed is a Science, Technology, Education, and Math (STEM) course which contains four modules (see below).  Every Renton School District Middle School teaches these modules in the same sequence, one per semester.  A student could take all four modules during seventh and eighth grade without repeating curriculum or activities while building their skills and knowledge. This Spring we will be teaching Aerospace Exploration.

Aerospace Exploration

Spring 2016

Aerospace Exploration (AE)

Each unit in Aerospace Exploration utilizes intensive, academic, and hands on experiences to approach different topics under the STEM umbrella.  Hands-on labs, group projects, career explorations, and a possible field trip contribute to a fun, well-rounded, and relevant academic experience which also strengthens students’ science, technology, engineering and math skills. There is a strong emphasis on Washington State and Renton School District best practices for math and science instruction.


Aerospace Exploration is comprised of four units:

  • Science of      Flight
  • Airplane      Design
  • Aerospace      Manufacturing Materials/Techniques
  • Aerospace      Industry/Careers
