PALM HARBOR, Fla. -
It’s our favorite part of the week! Friday leads us into the weekend, but it’s also when we showcase our 10News School of the Week powered by Duke Energy Florida.
This week we spent time on the campus of Palm Harbor Middle School in Pinellas County.
Palm Harbor Middle has a little bit of everything for everyone, but they aren’t stopping there.
One of the school’s goals they are working towards having a Career Academy for Technology. Having an academy would open the doors for students to earn more professional certifications.
Some of the programs looking to be part of the career academy include woodshop, robotics and computer. They already have the most number of students certified in Microsoft Office among all the other middle schools in the district.
Wood tech may look like an old-school woodshop classroom, but the instruction is infused with STEM and STEAM concepts.
Those concepts are found in robotics as well where students are engineering, building and coding their creations.
The school also celebrates Veterans Day each year and is open to the public. Thousands of people have attended in years past to honor vets with a connection to the school.
It’s easy to see why they are our 10News School of the Week powered by Duke Energy Florida..
