Developing Future-Ready Students
Developing Future-Ready Students
Pea Ridge Public Schools wanted more for their students. Their workplace-readiness revolution is powered by hands-on, minds-on learning. Superintendent Rick Neal initiated a program that would better prepare students for the workplace and higher education by partnering with Northwest Arkansas’s business and industry leaders. The Pea Ridge Manufacturing and Business Academy (PRMBA) took off! But the students entering the program as juniors and seniors needed more preparation prior to the program. Neal identified an internal pipeline problem, and Pea Ridge Exploration of Pathways (PREP) program was created. By partnering with Pitsco Education, STEM education is now the place, activity, and method through which Pea Ridge students build their workplace-readiness skills. Developing future-ready students . . . #ThisIsSTEM.

#ThisIsSTEM
We believe STEM is more than academic knowledge; it’s what happens during a project, a group discussion, a presentation, or an activity. It’s the challenges, failures, and a-ha moments. It’s the place where and the activity through which today’s students can develop and practice skills that will prepare them for success in a world they’ll live in that we can’t yet describe. Student success . . . #ThisIsSTEM
