Pathways Teacher TrainingReference ID: P2030
MAKING technical employees requires providing students with opportunities to MAKE
connections with workforce skills, math concepts, science concepts and a
MAKER'S mentality. Join us for a hands-on look into the Pathways to a Technical Future learning style designed to prepare all students for a technical future!
Through the Pathways to a Technical Future program, students will gain knowledge while acquiring practical skills and expertise that will enable them to be successful in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) workforce. Students will learn through experiences directly tied to academic requirements and Public Power practices.

So how do we develop this monumental process? Easy, identify who can help and provide them with the resources necessary to make this happen in their own backyards. Teachers are our best allies to influence students. We needed a way to show teachers how public power is the answer to that dreaded question “When will I ever use this?”
