Technology continues to revolutionize education. From AR-enhanced learning experiences to AI-powered personalized education, our classrooms are evolving rapidly. We're at the forefront of integrating these advancements into our curriculum to provide the best learning environment for our students.

Breakthroughs in STEM Fields

Quantum Computing Advancements: Quantum computers are reaching new heights with record-breaking capabilities in processing power. These innovations are poised to reshape industries and problem-solving approaches in fields like medicine, cryptography, and logistics.

Biotech Developments: CRISPR technology, known for its gene-editing prowess, is making significant strides, offering promising avenues in treating genetic diseases and advancing agricultural practices with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) that are more resilient to climate change.

Staff of the Month: Grace Tackett

Join us in celebrating Grace Tackett, our exceptional Staff of the Month! Grace embarked on her tech journey with a year of college focusing on secondary education, later earning six IT certifications through a certification course. Her diverse work experience, including backend systems for a meat packing plant, brought her to our team at ETP. In the classroom, Grace's resourcefulness shines with her love for "Terminus," a game that creatively teaches Linux commands. She also fosters hands-on learning by allowing students to dismantle old desktop computers to understand their components. Beyond her tech expertise, Grace finds joy in fantasy and sci-fi books and explores the outdoors through hikes and geocaching. Engaged to Kevin Burns, she looks forward to expanding her family with a furry friend soon. Grace's dedication to inspiring students in the tech field and nurturing their problem-solving skills makes her a valued asset to our school community. Congratulations, Grace, and thank you for your outstanding contributions!

Fun STEM Fact of the Month:

Did you know that the first computer programmer was a woman? Ada Lovelace, an English mathematician, wrote the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. She is often regarded as the world's first computer programmer!

Stay tuned for more exciting updates and breakthroughs in the world of STEM and technology.
