Representatives from throughout universities in Japan visited Manor New Technology High School and Manor New Tech Middle this week to see the innovative practices and approaches to curriculum practiced daily at the school and within Manor ISD.
The visit was organized through Global Austin, which sets up visits in a variety of fields for professional development of all kinds.
The visitors represented mentoring programs in Japan that promote women entering fields related to science, technology, engineering, and math. They wanted to see how the Manor New Tech schools' approach to project-based learning helps female students engage with STEM in the classroom and beyond.
“We always love to share the great academic practices, and to hear about the programs available to students elsewhere,” said MNTHS Academic Dean Claudia Acevedo. “To share these practices on through an international perspective just makes it all the more exciting.”
MNTHS is a PBL demonstration school, which regularly gives tours to share its best practices. Those interested in going on a tour should contact the school at 512-278-4875.
