Career Readiness

Hands-on, project-based learning is the essential pathway to most technical vocation and engineering-based careers. Classroom technical and engineering activities often require students to work in teams where they must collaborate and communicate effectively. In the 21st century, these skills will continue to be critical for career success in any field. Research also shows that when engineering-based learning styles are factored into elementary instruction, students become more aware of the diverse opportunities for engineering, science, and technical careers—and they are more likely to see these careers as options they could choose.
