CHOCTAW — For Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center, 2012 was an outstanding year. Not only was it one of the most successful years since the school's founding in 1982, it was also the year EOC Tech added its STEM Education program to the curriculum.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, one of the fastest growing occupational categories in our economy. As the world grows and develops technologically, more post-STEM students will be required in nearly every field.
Nearly 33 percent of U.S. manufacturing companies who responded to a recent survey said they are suffering from some level of skills shortages, thus pointing even more educational administrations toward the rapidly expanding such educational program.
The program at EOC Tech is open to high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who meet specific academic criteria. The Advanced Placement-level, high school course is taught by Edward Lord and Lynn Brooksher.
The program provides the opportunity for students to explore multiple fields of engineering throughout the two years they are enrolled. Students work on complex real-world problems. Some projects will be with a team and some will be done individually, which allows students to both learn from and lead their peers.
