Electronics: In electronics, students are taught about circuits and robotics. Van Tech has attended and competed in robotics tournaments
Theatre: Within the field theatre, students start in grade 8 in a drama class which is available up to grade 10. Students in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 are allowed to take a theatre production class which will put on an annual play. Another class that is also offered is stage production.
Graphics: Using current design programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, students can design their own projects, which include buttons, decals and basic Photoshop work. Another part of this is the Van Tech yearbook, which is designed in house by students in the same shop.
Programming: In programming, students learn the basics of coding in Python.
The current generation of children will require to be literate in technology to be competitive in the future job market. Not knowing how to code will be comparable to not learning how to read. Most jobs require the knowledge of necessary IT skills, while even retail and fast food jobs require technology and computers. Coding specialists are well-paid and highly sought-after in the current market, and opportunities for these skilled employees will expand in the future.Many of our ideas are wild dreams that aren’t acted upon because we don’t understand the limitations or capabilities of the tools available to us. Understanding how to build a website or develop a program goes a long way towards achieving those dreams.
