STEM Programming Gaining Momentum at Marinette High School!
Kudos to technology education teachers Matt Marotz and Eric Cooley for their recent "high tech" demonstrations of a virtual welder and 3-D printers. They will soon have a robotic arm (Fanuc Robot) for their students to learn programming and processing skills. Students will be extending their STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming that has gained momentum at the Marinette Middle School (thanks to Lynn Francour initiating Lego Robotics and Minecraft).
This equipment enables Marinette High School to offer four more dual (college and high school) credit courses: Automation 1, Automation 2, Machine Wiring and Safety, and Intro to Robotics. This is another example of the School District of Marinette pursuing more opportunities for students to succeed in life after high school.
Marinette High School students have regularly earned the highest number of "transcribed credits" among all Marinette, Oconto and Florence county school districts. In the 2013-14 school year, 226 Marinette High School students completed 553 transcribed credits. That amount of college credit achieved in high school equates to over $75,000 of savings when based on 2014-15 per credit tuition costs of $135.70 at NWTC.
Transcribed Credit Courses are taught by high school teachers with Wisconsin Technical College System certification. NWTC curriculum and assessment methods are used. Student grades are posted to an official NWTC transcript. The grade a student receives in a transcribed course becomes part of the student’s official college record. Transcribed credit agreements are transferable to other Wisconsin technical colleges and may transfer to four-year universities.
