Making Math and Science Skills Pay Off

The ATETV project delivers web-based videos to connect students to careers in advanced technology. In this episode of ATETV, laser and photonics technology, geospatial technology and alternative energy technologies are discussed. A strong background in math and science gives students an advantage in their community college programs. The skills learned in such programs translate directly to the field. Community colleges offer courses to help students improve their math and science skills if need be. The episode can be watched in full or through the three segments: "The Precision of Laser and Photonics Technologies," "Mapping the Coordinates of a New Career," and "Alternative Energies of the Future." Running time for the full episode of this streaming video is 9:25.
