Workforce Development Task Force Update

Ted Tyler, Chair – The SUSD STEM After-Hours & Summer Programs subcommittee of the Scottsdale Workforce Development Committee continues to encourage employers to offer internships for 10 students attending Scottsdale Math & Science Academy at Saguaro High School. A copy of a memorandum prepared by Chris Brandt of the Academy has been widely distributed. Our reputation for developing and advocating unique STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) after-hours and summer programs continues to be recognized throughout the Valley. On September 26 the initial meeting was held at SkySong with representatives of the Mosaic Arts Center from the West Valley to help them develop an after-hours program using the Arts as a catalyst for children's’ learning, using hands-on artistic expression and linking it to math, science, reading and language curriculum.
