“To enhance education for better workforce development; and to ignite tomorrow’s innovators while developing the most valued engineering and manufacturing workforce to compete in the global market.”
Improve education in America by inspiring students, teachers, and administrators within the present educational system. Motivate and equip high school students to develop 21st Century skills and pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
A four-year, sequenced, STEM curricula that meets Career and Tech Ed (CTE) course TEKS and HB-5 requirements and receives CTE funding. Curricula covers introductions to the R&D industry and innovation; mechanical drafting/CAD for working drawings capture; and applied physics of main energy systems - mechanical, electrical, thermal, fluid - through design, build, and test projects.
Learning primarily through application, not memorization.
Project-based teaching that engages all types of learners.
Knowledge and skills are reinforced and expanded through increasingly complex project goals.
The possibility of project failure, and its analysis if it occurs, is part of the learning experience.
Life skill development in problem-solving, critical thinking, cognitive reasoning, project management, team work, leadership, and R&D skills and innovation are incorporated.
The Texas Education Agency has approved SystemsGo for the fourth year science credit required for graduation.
