Students from the Tyner Academy EPB Institute of Technology and Networking will experience technology used at EPB during a visit to the partner facility next Wednesday at 10 a.m.
During the visit, EPB employees will have the opportunity to mentor students interested in technology and networking and students will get contacts successful in the field. The EPB staff will also assist students with problem-based learning (PBL) exercises.
"Partnerships in Future Ready Institutes in Hamilton County Schools are designed to promote collaboration between the business sponsor and the school programs to expose teens to real-world learning experiences by connecting with professionals working in the field," officials said.
"Future Ready Institutes challenge the traditional approach to education in high schools by developing career-themed small learning communities. Themes include medicine, robotics, forensic science, engineering, hospitality, technology, business, marketing and more. Teachers of all content areas including English, math, science and social studies work closely with the career theme teacher to provide classroom instruction through the lens of a career. The goal is for students to clearly understand why a lesson is important and how they will use the information in the future."
Hamilton County Schools will have 27 Future Ready Institutes this fall available to students from across the district.
