Grades 9–12: Education in the 21st century requires, specifically, skills and knowledge related to the use of today’s computer and, generally, in understanding the developments in the science of communication (cybernetics) and control theory that are concerned (1) especially with the comparative study of automatic control systems (as the nervous system and brain mechanical-electrical communication systems), and (2) insofar as the science of communication, automatic control systems, and the hands-on utility of computer can be applied in education to the hard and soft sciences. Within this context, the Oratory Athenaeum students of grades 9-12 have at their disposal online databases that can be accessed to obtain information. Students can access Britannica online (Spanish and English versions), EBSCO, Discovery Education (for classroom instruction only), and Brain Pop, to name but a few of the library resources.
