School Technology Plan
As part of reference services & resources graduate coursework, Jessica created a school technology plan to explain how a high school design & engineering program could use technology to provide instruction virtually during a time when using shared equipment in the engineering lab was prevented by the 2020 pandemic. As an alternative, the engineering instructors were able to provide students with this guide to begin a project aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards wherein they would identify a current barrier to renewable energy and develop a solution using the engineering iterative process.
