One of Papillion La Vista South High School's newest clubs is the Technology Club. 

Therese Laux is the club sponsor. She was inspired to start the club when students in her info tech classes began expressing that they wanted to learn more about technology. 

Laux has a background in communications and media production and she had a feeling a club would be fun.

"We all know kids who are involved in school do better in school, so let's do a club," Laux explained.

She feels the club has been received really well so far. 

"The students get to expand their network of friends and also learn new ways to use technology here."

9th grader Miranda Crutcher likes attending club meetings.

"Technology is logic and creativity all built into one," Crutcher said.

Club member Zachary Anderson explained he joined the club because he likes technology and that is what it is all about. 

"I think technology offers so much opportunity for everyone and there are so many projects you can do with tech," Laux said.

"We thought it would be fun to let the school know we were a club by getting the school involved," Technology Club President McKayla Debonis explained.

"Everyone loves animals so we asked them to send us pictures to get them excited about the club."

The club was surprised when they received 400 responses which was a lot more than the club expected. 

"I didn't expect us to get as many votes in and I thought it was really fun," Tech Club Member Ean Vasser said.

"It was a good team-building experience, I got to know a lot of people."

The club's next project is to create a public service announcement video for the school.
