Parent/Teacher/Community leaders, please share this with your networks.
Arlington Public Schools is providing three innovative, six-week,
integrative math and technical education courses this summer through the
APS/NOVA partnership at the Governors Career and Technical Academy in
Arlington (GCTAA). All three courses provide between five and ten college
credits including three in Math and up to seven in technical subject areas (
*IT / Web Application Development, Digital Media, *or* Automotive Technology
*), and also one high school credit in the technical subject area.
*All three courses are driven by project-based learning, allowing for
learning math in a relevant, hands-on context.*
We are particularly interested in recruiting young women and men for the
Automotive Technology program, in which students receive three college
credits in Math 151, two college credits in Auto100, and one high school
credit in Automotive Technology 1. This summer program would be
particularly advantageous to students looking to distinguish themselves in
the college application process from other students with otherwise similar
academic backgrounds. Of course, they will also learn a lot about cars and
trucks and engineering.
