Engineering at HCA
Harvest Christian Academy is home to the new Robotics and Innovation Lab and the Harvest Christian Academy of Engineering and Robotics! Through generous donations from our families in 2020, we launched a PK-12th grade initiative to bring engineering and robotics opportunity to all of our students. The Robotics and Innovation Lab will provide an opportunity for students to explore hands-on engineering concepts, design process, robotics and automation, and artificial intelligence (AI) programming. We are excited to offer our students the ability to develop and explore their talents and interests in pursuit of excellence and within the context of Christian education.
Pre-K thru Grade 8
Our Robotics and Innovation Lab will be serving students at all levels. Middle School students in grades 5-8 will have access to engineering and robotics electives that teach coding, programming, and exploration of engineering principles. Our youngest Lions in Grades PK-4 will have hands-on modules pushed into their classroom day and provide opportunity for exploration and developing the engineering mindset.
We will be using Engineer Your World curriculum, which is a “hands-on, design-based, inquiry-focused engineering course for all learners. In this course, students discover the engineering design process, make data-driven decisions, and work in multi-level teams to solve complex challenges.”
