Students work on long-term projects solving real-world problems with the education specialist and in the field mentors. This gives students the opportunity to experience hands-on technical and logistical situations not otherwise available to them in the regular classroom setting. This experiential learning opportunity gives the student a sedge way into a career not otherwise available to them, giving them the opportunity to make experiential based career and educational choices.
Students present their projects thru the science fair venue which easily be adapted to FFA, 4-H and other presentation forums.
