Ready to Work

That’s what many people think about when they hear the words “career education.” But today’s career and technical education programs have come a long way from the days of building birdhouses in a sawdust covered workshop.

Dreaming Big For Their School and Community

As Omaha North High School’s STEM program gained in popularity, it became difficult to coordinate overlapping activities because classrooms and work areas were spread throughout the campus. In 2003, students approached their teachers with an idea: imagine if all STEM students could gather in one collaborative learning space with convenient access to resources and technology.
