SEPTEMBER 2018

WATCH OUT WORLD

Kickstarting Computer Science Education

A group of Gulliver students are working diligently to give all students in Miami-Dade County the opportunity to expand their knowledge in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) areas. How do they plan to take on such a task? Through a unique online educational platform they are developing, called Kickstart. >>How six Prep students are working to close the STEM skills gap.

Introducing Raider Student Network – Run by Middle School Students

Students are thinking like real-world television producers in the all-new Broadcasting courses offered to Middle School students. Taught by Mrs. Cristina Salup, class activities include the full-scale production of Raider Student Network, an in-house, student-centered television program. >>More on the new Middle School Broadcasting electives.
