Students learn how existing technologies developed for one purpose can be applied to a different function. Groups work together, applying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) concepts to projects. Students engage in hands-on activities to learn that the transfer of a technology from one society to another can cause cultural, social, economic, and political challenges. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
