"We evaluated STEM programs from several companies and the Paxton/Patterson program was clearly ahead of any other programs in terms of software flexibility and resources. There is nothing else we looked at that compared."

  - John Davis
    Technology Education Teacher
    Carmel Clay Schools
 

"This lab has allowed students and parents to understand the vast amount of interests and careers that come from the STEM areas. Having it at middle school, just builds the foundation for our students to go on to high school and start zeroing in on 'what are the interests that might be connected to my future career?'"

  - Dr. Debbi Burdick
    Superintendent
    Cave Creek USD

 

"Now they have actual hands-on experiences, so that admissions essay for college becomes so much more powerful, and that job interview becomes so much more impressive.

They're going to be getting the higher rate of pay because they probably earned certifications through the exposure at such an early level, and they started in high school while it’s still free."

  - Dr. Debbi Burdick
    Superintendent
    Cave Creek USD

 

"They're retaining all the information because they're doing something with their hands. The students are taking blood, ankle wraps, looking at images of the x-rays. They really get a lot out of it and they realize what they like and what they don't like."

"I had a senior last year and he wanted to be an elementary school teacher, then he took this class and he realized that he actually liked the medical imaging unit. Now he's in a radiology program."

  - Melissa Ellis
    Health Occupations Instructor

"Students figure out they love something or they hate something. They'll be able to say 'Wow! I love that! I might consider that pathway for high school.' Then hopefully they connect that pathway to a possible major, if they choose education beyond the high school, and that major can influence their career."

"Now they have actual hands-on experiences, so that admissions essay for college becomes so much more powerful, and that job interview becomes so much more impressive. They're going to be getting the higher rate of pay because they probably earned certifications through the exposure at such an early level."

  - Kathleen Boyd
    Coordinator CTE/ROP/STEM/Career Pathways
    Orange USD

 

"It’s a lot of application. With the critical thinking, they work together to resolve issues and that gives them more responsibility for learning, to really push and to become ready for high school, college and career."

  - Dr. Randy Martinez
