The Future of the “Next Step”: How Technology and Trades Skills are Revitalizing the K12 Environment

  • Date:Thursday, November 4
  • Time:2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: Not every student can or wants to take a traditional path to employment. What was seen as the typical, “next step” for students must shift to meet the growing need for technology and trades. High performance spaces and integrated technology and skills can be designed to inspire our youth through their educational experience encouraging them to join the work force in ways that meet their interests and support our diverse employment cross-section. Join us to learn more about our design team’s recent project where we will showcase the concept, refinement, and construction of high-tech spaces that have transformed a local district’s educational program and ignited student passion for careers in technology and trades skills.
