February is Career and Technical Education Month
Technology Education students at Maple Grove Junior High are learning about technological literacy as they carry out laboratory and classroom activities. When students learn by doing, they take practical problem solving skills and put them to work to solve different types of real world problems.
Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed February as Career and Technical Education month.
Technology Education programs provide the inspiration for a new generation of innovators, the practical skills and hands-on experience to make students’ knowledge count in the real world, and the basis for the next generation of leadership in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
These classes helps develop motivated, well-rounded students by instilling confidence, stressing the importance of self-discovery, encouraging innovative problem solving, critical thinking and team building.
