At Benway School we constantly strive to open up new career possibilities for our students. That is why we created “21st Century Careers.” This program provides students the opportunity to work with the growing technology of our world, and opens up their minds to new career opportunities that they may have not previously considered. The program includes:
- 3-D Printing
- Film Production
Our robotics classes have three different levels: Basic-coding with OZOBots, Intermediate- building and coding with Lego Mindstorms, and Advanced- Building and coding EZ Robots.
Students learn how to create their own designs and print them using our MakerBot Replicator 2, 3-D Printer.
This course allows students to learn the basics of coding. They learn to use these skills to create controls for games and to give commands to robots.
In our newest addition to the program, students learn how to properly and safely operate drones and become exposed to the career possibilities that drones can have.
Students learn and experience the different aspects of creating a film: acting, audio operation, camera operation, lighting, musical score, and editing. Each year students decide the genre of movie they would like to produce and make a short film, which is premiered for the entire school.
