Schools stress engineering, technology education

Bleau noted students can create airplane parts for old aircraft and use such techniques as injection molding that are used in the real world today.

And the children are soaking it up, right through their protective safety glasses.

"It’s very high tech and you get to learn about different things in the world like geothermal and how to program stuff like robots and engineering bridges," said Jazmien Pender, a student at Havelock Middle. "I really want to go to flight technology."

Student Kasyne McCall said the lab offers more advanced learning than in other classes.

"We’re basically learning the whole technology of how a rocket takes off down to how a basic rocket is constructed," she said.

McCall said the rocket station was her favorite and is giving her ideas about a career.

"I might look more into how rockets and stuff are built, just the way they take off and just the way they are made," she said.
