    8th Grade - The eighth grade technology education
    course lasts for 12 weeks. Students study
    manufacturing, product design and development,
    cost analysis, and marketing principles.  Engineering
    drawings are produced and cost analyses are
    generated using spreadsheets. Calculations,
    drawings, and designs are generated using computer
    aided methods. In the manufacturing lab, students
    set up and run a manufacturing facility to mass
    produce the products that they have engineered.
    This objective is accomplished through cooperative
    learning work groups.  Emphasis is placed on
    quality control, production processes, evaluation of
    feedback, recognition of technological problems,
    and developing alternative solutions.
