Albemarle County pushes maker curriculum further with MIT program
The Daily Progress Monday, December 18, 2017 at 6 a.m.
Students at Albemarle County’s charter high school are participating in a maker curriculum challenge to create a virtual reality tool to help people prepare for job interviews.
The project at Murray High School is part of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology-backed initiative, for which only 20 schools nationwide were selected to find ways to push the maker curriculum further into classrooms.
The overall objective is to develop both curriculum and teaching practices with this project that can be shared not just with schools in the county, but with other divisions nationwide.
