Havelock Middle students show high-tech knowledge

Posted: Updated:

Business leaders visited Havelock Middle School to get a first-hand look at what kids are learning.

The next Iphone; the latest in energy efficient technology; a breakthrough in the fight against cancer. Those are just some of things the students of today could be working on once they enter the workforce.

Schools these days are putting special emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and math. They hope that emphasis will teach kids the skills they need to fill engineering jobs in the east.

"It's good to have our business partners here and to take time out of a very busy day to see what we are doing and also it gives them an opportunity to tell us if we're meeting their needs are not," said Carr Ipock the Craven County School Board Chairman.

The bureau of labor statistics says high-tech jobs will grow rapidly over the next 10 years.
