The goal of this project was to develop, implement, and distribute a grade 6-12 technology curriculum that was integrated with science, mathematics, computer programming, English, social studies, and the arts. The development of course outlines and new course lesson plans and materials was the major component of the project. Following the project report proper are extensive appendixes that begin with technology education course listings for the 1985-86 and 1988-89 school years.
