Huntington describes Polytechnic High School

Purdue’s Polytechnic Indianapolis High School, which is scheduled to open its doors in the fall of 2017, is bringing active learning into its STEM-based education.

Brooke Huntington, assistant dean for K-12 outreach for the Polytechnic High School, told a story of her high school calculus class.

“(In high school,) I never (understood) how I needed to know calculus,” she said. “In this high school you’ll be able to bring calculus to life and understand why it’s important because it’ll be contextualized learning. Students will be able to actually do projects that will engage you in life sciences that you’re interested in.”
