ASCTE launches cyber, engineering outreach program

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville’s innovative Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering has launched a statewide outreach program.

Advancing Cyber Concepts and Engineering Learning will formalize ASCTE’s efforts to assist teachers, administrators, and superintendents across the state in replicating cyber technology and engineering studies within their own schools.

Mandated by the Alabama legislation that created ASCTE to find ways to accomplish this, ACCEL will spearhead a variety of educator workshops, cyber curriculum implementation, standard-based grading pedagogy, K-12 curriculum support, and training for IT specialists to help in those efforts.

“We are excited to announce the launch of our new outreach program, ACCEL, which reflects our commitment to making a positive impact beyond the walls of our school and throughout the state of Alabama,” said Matt Massey, president of ASCTE. “Through this program, we aim to create meaningful connections by partnering with schools and inspiring a passion for learning and growth in the cyber and engineering fields.

“K12 education in Alabama is on an upward trajectory, and we are eager to share our area of expertise with those around us.”

Within the past year, ASCTE offered middle school cyber camps to schools in Jackson, Clarke, and Bullock counties. ACCEL will formalize these efforts and customize these offerings to meet the needs of schools and districts across Alabama.

ASCTE is one of three residential, public magnet high schools serving students throughout Alabama and currently the only public high school nationwide to integrate cyber technology and engineering into all academic disciplines.
