Participating students will be mentored by FAU College of Medicine students during activities held on the FAU campus.

    Pre-Engineering - Gateway to Technology

    Gateway to Technology is a cutting–edge program that addresses the interest and energy of middle school students, while incorporating national standards in math, science and technology. The Gateway to Technology program is “activity-oriented” to show students how technology is used in engineering to solve everyday problems. The instructional units excite and motivate students to use their imagination and teach them to be creative and innovative, while gaining the skills they need to develop, produce and use products and services.. For more information, please contact Kathleen Rodgers, Pre-Engineering instructor.

    The Pre-Information Technology Program offers an innovative, integrated learning environment focused on computers, technology, and communications. Students who participate in Pre-Information Technology acquire foundational knowledge and skills in basic programming techniques, software, and web development, and emerging digital technologies. Emphasis is placed on a college preparatory curriculum directly linked to career pathways in the IT career cluster.
