Tech Squad

Tech Squad Overview 

Introduction

Do you love working with computers? Do you enjoy solving problems and fixing things? Join the KCMS Tech Squad. You and a group of 15 innovative students will work together to learn about computer components and programming. You will also help to solve technology issues throughout Ken Caryl Middle School during the school day. No computer experience is necessary, but a passion for technology and learning new things is required. Mr. Reinig, our district technologist, will help guide the Tech Squad through the world of Information Technology support with real world applications. 

Objectives

The Tech Squad will engage in hands-on instructional activities that provides them with real world experience in technology hardware, software, and coding. The Tech Squad will then utilize this new learning in a leadership capacity as they collaboratively work to solve problems and provide support for technology issues at Ken Caryl Middle School

Structure

The Tech Squad will meet every Thursday during Advisement (12:44-2:14). At this time, students will learn new technology skills from a district technologist and work as a collaborative team to solve technology problems throughout our school. Additionally, the Tech Squad will be Library TAs for one of their electives periods. During this TA time, Tech Squad students will be solving technology issues throughout the building independently. They will also be engaging in Tech Squad coursework in Google Classroom and Newsela throughout the semester.

Grading

Students will receive a weekly grade based on the Tech Squad Rubric. 

Application

There are three components to the Tech Squad application. You must fill out an application, obtain a parent signature, and have one KCMS staff member complete a recommendation form. If a larger number of students apply, an interview may be required. 8th grade students will be considered first for the 15 coveted Tech Squad slots.
