Promoting engagement and achievement in science and mathematics is both an academic imperative and a critical component in developing a robust, highly skilled talent pipeline. Educators face the challenge of cultivating student interest in and appreciation for STEM. At the same time, companies need to be able to attract, train and retain a solid base of qualified employees to succeed.
At CCAT, we spearhead innovative approaches to enhance K-12 STEM education, career awareness, and workforce development. We create engaging, context-based curriculum, implement experiential student programming that introduces STEM careers, and offer professional development to help educators adapt to new national standards and transform their classrooms into active learning environments.
We work with the manufacturing community to enhance employer engagement and provide critical assistance to job seekers. As a licensed test center, we also administer basic and technical skills assessments for core manufacturing competencies, resulting in industry-recognized credentials.
