Why the Arts Matter

When school budgets are tight, art programs often find themselves on the chopping block. Today’s definition of arts education has evolved considerably from what it once was. Today’s art programs encompass a wide array of disciplines – from fine arts to digital media, from music to landscape architecture – and are encouraging creative thinking, problem solving, and healthy emotional development among other things. In fact,… Watch the Film

Ready to Work

Shop class. Home Ec. Maybe some type of work-study program. 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. In Nebraska’s public schools, career education encompasses a wide… Watch the Film

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. Their plans reflected a new… Watch the Film

The Education Business

In 2002, teacher Clay Mohr was trying to find a way to motivate a particularly challenging group of sophomore boys when he had the opportunity to bring a laser engraver into his industrial technology shop for six weeks.
