How does being exposed to technology pave the way to future careers?

"At Madison Park Middle School, students are learning by using and managing technology through Paxton/Patterson’s interactive multimedia program, while engaging in authentic problem-based learning. 1-to-1 technology, project-based learning, and group collaboration to build their ability to understand, apply, and analyze information.”

STEAM Program instructor, Jason Bruso, hopes his students will become highly skilled, successful and valuable members of the future workforce. “The more technology, the more skills and engineering you do, the more options you will have.”  His Paxton/Patterson lab provides just that.

Paxton/Patterson’s College & Career Ready Labs expose students to a wide range of knowledge and skills, encourage creativity and innovation, while exploring a variety of careers to help them figure out “What do I want to be when I grow up?

How Does STEAM Sound?

Boom Baby STEM Project

At Cerro Villa Middle School, in Villa Park, CA, it goes "BOOM Baby." During a two week summer school class, called STEAM Academy, students worked with instructor, Daniel Baker, to develop a creative music video. The project challenged students to utilize S.T.E.A.M. education - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, combined with Art. In the video, students work with Paxton/Patterson Action Labs, firing rockets, launching CO2 dragsters, and testing pneumatic systems.
