MOMENTUM (Technology Education)

Loading from Vimeo...

In support of the Minnetonka School Board goals, the District has engaged in a careful exploration of student interests, future workforce preparedness and potential post-secondary opportunities in the skilled trades. With special thanks to our student focus groups, Trades Advisory Board, staff and administrators, MOMENTUM was launched with expanded opportunities in technology education beginning in the 2020-21 school year.

"MOMENTUM" captures the hands-on, forward motion and forward thinking that is part of this work. It's broad and expandable as we grow the offerings of this program.

Incorporating our new facilities, we are offering:

  • an expanded number of elective Automotive courses
  • a new strand of applied courses, including Mathematics in Home Renovation - a two hour experiential learning course that includes both core (Math) and elective (Home Renovation) credit.
  • connections to local businesses
  • awareness of trade and technical school offerings
  • Senior Capstone experience for students who complete an advanced-level course
