LESSONS IN HI-TECH
The Tsofen Lessons in Hi-Tech program was created with a goal to ensure exposure for Arab high school students, their educators, parents and community to hi-tech initiatives. Studies show that a significant number of Arab High School students are enrolled in STEM courses but the number of those students who continue to study these topics is relatively low. The Lessons in Hi-Tech project helps identify key challenges to accomplish growth and sustainability for high school students studying STEM and prepares them to continue these studies in higher education. Lessons in hi-tech creates enriching partnerships and exposure with the hi-tech industry. The program aims to increase STEM studies at the university level by showing high school students – and their parents – that a career in hi-tech is a valid career option.
