Savagian

Hello… I am Mr. Savagian and I teach Engineering and Technology.  In our classroom we work to find solutions to challenging objectives.  Students work on small group projects that provide opportunities for developing students’ organizational, teamwork, leadership and negotiation skills.   I believe that it is important to engage our students at a higher level with the introduction and expansion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) principles.  Students design 3D models and create those models in our Tech Lab. 

I am the Lead Director of our District’s FLL team.  In FIRST Lego League (FLL), students work to design, build, and program a robot (using LEGO® MINDSTOMS® robot set). As a team, students create an innovative solution to a world problem. The competition includes learning how to construct a robot, researching a topic, and presenting their ideas.  Nicolet FEAR students mentor students from local middle schools:  Glen Hills, Maple Dale, and Bayside.  Teams are composed of students from the different middle schools, to compete in friendly FLL competitions.
