STEM – Not Your Father’s Voc Ed

September 11, 2011

One of the area’s of educational focus in Saline and across the country over the last few years has been STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) programming. Locally, we have launched Project Lead the Way at the middle school and are planning to implement at the high school in the fall of 2012. In addition, we are looking at how our existing industrial technology classes can incorporate STEM principals and how they can partner with other programs.

According to ISTE President Helen Padgett,

“The name of the game now is systemic change, with districts moving toward more rigorous interdisciplinary approaches.”

In Saline, we are uniquely suited to achieve the goal of expanding STEM opportunities. We have a faculty that understands the need to reinvent our programs and we have outstanding facilities that allow for this transformation. We are working to leverage our current South & West Washtenaw Consortium programs – most of which are offered right at Saline High School. I strongly encourage parents and students to consider our programs that offer rigorous curriculum in a hands-on learning environment.
