It’s hard for me to believe that my oldest daughter needs to start thinking about college and a career path already. She’s only just begun her freshman year of high school, and yet we’ve already talked about graduating early or taking classes at the local community college. She is currently taking Honors Physics, Algebra 2, and Intro to Engineering, among other things (which completely blows my mind!) and she is surprisingly strong in the maths and sciences. As a student of the language arts, it’s hard for me to relate, let alone help, with her classes.
How often have your kids asked “When am I going to use this math in the real world?” How often did YOU ask that question when you were in school? Guess what? Here’s your answer:
What is ATETV?
ATETV, or Advanced Technological Education Television, is an award winning online video series that gives students, parents, educators, and counselors up to date information about job opportunities in technical fields, as well as the educational paths to these careers. The videos on ATETV.org were produced with a grant from the National Science Foundation as a tool to attract more students into the science, engineering, math, and technological fields.
According to the United States Labor Department, the demand for these technical jobs is going to continue to increase in the future, which means that there will be a greater need to attract more students to these fields. The videos showcase real job opportunities to get kids excited about the technical fields, and then offer tools to help them plan their classes to be on the path to get those jobs after graduation.
