Dates: Week of January 6th-10th
This week I will be visiting High Tech Middle and High School. Their website is: http://www.hightechhigh.org/ & a video explanation of the high school:
These schools are well known for their science and technology programs since the mid-nineties. San Diego has a lot of science and research companies and those companies needed more students who could think deeply about complicated science questions. Critical thinking and problem solving skills are emphasized. Their students are often connected to businesses in the area through internships. Project based learning is a key component of their philosophy. I will share more after my visits this week.
