Aurora Public Schools Career and Technical Education (CTE) students recently showed off their top work to business and industry leaders. Students from Aurora Central, Gateway, Hinkley, Rangeview and Vista PEAK Preparatory high schools participated in the showcase.
Student work included: Aerospace, Digital and Software Engineering/Design, Visual & Design Arts Capstone projects, Web Design, Tax Help Colorado services and Biomedical Health Science Capstone projects.
Members of the CTE Pathway Advisory Committee asked students about their projects and offered them feedback. The time and efforts of PAC members have positively impacted CTE student achievement and outcomes.
A requirement of state-recognized CTE programs is to have an active Advisory Committee comprised of 51% business/industry members who provide feedback regarding class curriculum, technology and work place skills, learning opportunities and business and industry trends. CTE Pathways prepare students to graduate from high school prepared for entry-level employment and/or participation in post-secondary programs.
