Island Trees School to Business Partnership Gets a Lesson in zSpace


On September 27th, the Island Trees School to Business Partnership had its kick-off meeting for the 2016-17 school year.  In addition to all of the exciting events being planned for our Career Advantage class, the board members had the chance to participate in a zSpace lesson from our own Mr. Conklin.  zSpace is an interactive hardware and software platform that allows students to visualize, create and experiences in Biology, Physics, Earth Science, Robotics, Art and more in ways not possible in a traditional computer environment.  zSpace's virtual reality environment provides depth to the digital learning experience by improving the ways things are studied, explored, and designed.  For example, using special glasses and a stylus, students can see and manipulate 3D images of a nerve cell, beating heart, or even build a house! 
The Island Trees School to Business Partnership is our advisory board for the School to Career program.  It is a forum for business professionals, parents, teachers, and political leaders to network and share ideas that help shape YOUR future workforce. Students involved will be College and Career ready. The activities of the advisory board in part determine the curriculum for Career Advantage, an elective course offered at Island Trees High School. The advisory board plans field trips, special events, schedules guest speakers and much more.  Our next meeting is on October 18th, 7:45 a.m., ITHS, please feel free join us!
