The Hemingway Technology Room
In the Hemingway technology room, we study much more than
computers. We think of technology as anything made by
people to solve problems. It is a place where students
learn how to fly airplanes on the flight simulators, design and
build a model of their "Dream House", build and launch a solid
fuel rocket capable of going hundreds of feet in the air, and
learn about solar cars by designing and making them.
Students also have the opportunity to build their own toys,
write a script for a commercial to theoretically sell the toy,
video the commercial, and edit it on the computer, all to be
shown on the semiweekly television show, Hemingway Weekly.
Robots are explored and programmed, with discussions on why they
exist and how to make them better. The environment is
discussed, specifically how to be environmentally friendly and
save our precious resources.
Students also have the
opportunity to be involved in a daily morning television show
broadcast live throughout the school. They write, direct, film, edit
and produce comedies and documentaries that are entered in a
national competition. Last year, one group of students
from Hemingway won the best fiction video category in the Kid
Witness News national video competition sponsored by the
This is the Hemingway Technology Room, where something exciting
is always happening!
