STEM education is a modern approach to middle and prep school curriculum that concusses on the real world application of S
ngineering and M
ath disciplines. The program, which is underway in all of the Wayne County's Public Middle Schools, seeks to bridge the gap between the skills many prep students have when they complete high school and the skills needed to evoke innovation in our workforce and higher education systems. This is accomplished through direct communication, collaboration and partnerships among STEM educators in the classroom, local businesses, existing industry and secondary education institutions.
In order to provide top notch workforce, Wayne County Development Alliance strives to coordinate the efforts of the public and private sectors with quality program development at the high school and community college levels. We encourage innovations like the Teachers at Work program, which pairs high school teachers with local industries in order to gain experience that transforms classroom learning to real-world workforce solutions.
