The Manchester Regional Education Partnership Center is holding an Open House this Wednesday to showcase its newly-completed Project Lead the Way classroom. Project Lead the Way is a curriculum developed to expose students to STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The Project Lead the Way courses offer students a more dynamic learning environment, allowing students to create, test and design through hands-on courses. It gives them experiences very similar to the real world. M-REP Center Director Deb Kintzle says in four years, there will be over one million unfilled jobs in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math, so the community is working with NICC to prepare these students for good job opportunities.
Kevin Schuchmann recently retired from West Delaware after teaching technology and business for over thirty years. Schuchmann will be the instructor for Project Lead the Way at the M-REP Center, and he says the classroom that has been designed for this curriculum is absolutely incredible.
The M-REP Center will offer the public a chance to tour the new start-of-the-art classroom at an open house this Wednesday from 4 to 7 pm. Kinzle says everyone is welcome.
