The FutureMaker Lab Program and mobile unit are a partnership between WSU Tech College and Goodwill Industries to introduce middle, high school, and GED seeking students to careers in science, technology, engineering and math. Participants will be introduced to Career Technical Education (CTE) programs and occupations that are in-demand in the state of Kansas and across the country. The program has grown since inception, and the team works each year to develop new stations to showcase more fields of study with the latest technology.
Activities offered in the program are based on the Kansas Department of Education’s curriculum standards for the following areas:
- College/Career Readiness
Teachers or administrators who schedule the FutureMaker Mobile Learning Lab at their schools are provided the opportunity to supplement their lessons in these content areas making learning “sticky,” and aiding in student retention and application of current curriculum.
Community event organizers who schedule the FutureMaker Mobile Learning Lab will find it an engaging way to offer hands-on career demonstrations for participants that add value to their event or camp.
