MPTV Community Cinema: Blueprint for Tomorrow's Education

This half-hour MPTV documentary takes a look at how schools, businesses and communities are partnering to prepare students for the 21st. century workplace. Innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs throughout Wisconsin are explored: Bay View High School's construction, architecture, and technology (BAT Academy); Burlington High School's BHS Chemicals Company; the Fluid Power Challenge, a fluid power technology skills competition for 8th. grade students; and the "green" garage partnership between Bradley Tech HS, Lowe's Foundation, the Helen Bader Foundation and Growing Power, an organization that grows food that grows community.

Panel:
Lauren Baker, Coordinator, Career and Technical Education for MPS.
Willie Sinclair, Bradley Tech High School Instructor.
Dr. Barbara Kopack-Hill, Burlington High School Principal.
