On Friday, March 24, 2017 students attended a STEM convention sponsored by Astra Zeneca at the Terry Campus of Delaware Technical Community College. Students participated in activities in the areas of Computer Technology, Health and Sciences, Energy and Engineering Technologies, Mathematics, and Public Service. These students had the opportunity to have hands on experiences in high demand fields in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Senior Michael Edwards was one of the enthusiastic participants, “It was interesting to work with the surgical tools. I had a hard time looking at the screen instead of looking down. I never realized how much technology was involved in the medical field.”
Trips like this are part of Milford High School’s reimagined curriculum that puts more emphasis on experiential learning. Programs like Allied Health, Computer Science, and Pre-engineering ask students to think more deeply and problem solve.
Currently students at Milford High School are requesting courses for next year. High School Principal Mr. Shawn Snyder explained that this process is very important to student success, “We want students to really reach for their dreams through the scheduling process. Take an AP course or Dual Enrollment Course. Take an extra major. Sign up for band or choir. Do something that we inform your future and build the skills for a successful future!”
