Mr. Atkins

Welcome to the VHS Technolgy Engineering and Design program!


I am a teacher and designer who believes that the most valuable kind of learning comes from experimentation, authentic discovery and critical reasoning.

To promote these ideals in my classroom, many learning activities revolve around play and are almost always multidisciplinary in nature.

I know that coming back to school during a pandemic may raise some questions and anxiety for some.  Many may wonder what classes based on STEM learning will be like in remote or

hybrid instruction.  Rest assured that I have many activities and supports in place to keep my classes focused on engaging all learners, and whenever possible, learning through doing. 

In fact, most students in most classes will be bringing materials home to ensure continuity of projects and learning experiences. Together we will make this the best year it can be!
