Posted on 05/16/2016

Both New Tech Institute and the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center received full STEM School Certification by the Indiana Department of Education earlier this week. Full STEM Certification is awarded to schools or programs that demonstrate a commitment to providing high-quality STEM programs in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math, while preparing students for success in the 21st century

According to Dan Ulrich, director of career and technical education, the application process was extensive and included reports on Advisory Committees, outreach to other schools, partnerships in the community, internships, certifications, integration of academics in math and sciences, and, if warranted, an on-site visit by a team from IDOE.

The certification will be good for five years.
