Owensboro Area Students show interest in Science, Technology, and Engineering Academy

Maintaining a competitive workforce for the future is a major objective of the Community Campus program established last year as a partnership between local high schools, the Owensboro Community and Technical College and the EDC.

A major area of focus is in advanced manufacturing and engineering.  The The Science, Technology and Engineering Academy, part of Community Campus, provides high school students with a rigorous curriculum aligned to careers in advanced manufacturing as well as four engineering programs at Kentucky universities.  Students in the academy receive both high school and college credit.

Interest in the program is exceeding initial expectations.  After pre-enrollment nearly 70 students from the participating high schools in Daviess and Hancock counties had signed up for the academy.
