The Western UP Center for Science, Math and Environmental Education and Horizons High School will partner to offer youth-at-risk an introduction to how technology is used in a variety of jobs/careers so that they can prepare to enroll in a community college or university after high school. Michigan Tech students will serve as role models and will share their passion and recently developed technology skills with high school students. The purpose of this class is to increase Horizons High School students’ interest, confidence and ability in pursuing a career in the technology field.
This job skills class will take place every other Friday afternoon for eight sessions. The class will run from mid-January through mid- April, taught by Chad Norman, science and technology specialist, Center for Science and Environmental Outreach. The Horizons class is funded with a grant from the Youth Advisory Council of the Keweenaw Community Foundation.
