Go CAPS - Update

Students in the GO CAPS program have had a fast paced and high energy introduction to the work world! Our GO CAPS teachers (Chris Adams, Sarah Clayton, and Tom Tobin) facilitated a two week “boot camp” in professional skills seeking to prepare students for their collaboration with industry professionals throughout the school year. Human resources professionals provided insight into professional dress, appropriate communication, and general guidance on how to function in a professional setting. In additional to authentic employee induction experiences, students visited multiple industry partners to learn about actual projects that will be assigned to student groups. The Medicine and Health Care students visited emergency facilities at both Cox and Mercy hospitals. Student teams are using knowledge from their visits and personal research to design their own version of a 25 bed emergency facility! The GO CAPS program has benefited greatly through the partnership and leadership provided by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce!

New! Teacher Tinker Time

MakerSpace is a buzz word that is making its way into our schools. Although it is not necessary to implement a MakerSpace, you might be interested in incorporating some Maker concepts or skills into your classrooms. The Learning Support (Curriculum) department is partnering with the Information Literacy department to bring you Teacher Tinker Time. We will host four afterschool sessions throughout the school year at various secondary schools around Springfield, each event featuring a different Maker project. Please find the attached flyer for event details and sign up today through Employee Self Service. To find more project ideas, visit our MakerSpace page in Canvas.
