How public school students can get involved

Encourage your science, math, computer or technology teachers to offer multiple ways of learning the material. There are individual and team events held annually in Chattanooga: Science Olympiad, Science Fair, First Lego League, MATH COUNTS, ACE Mentoring Program, Chamber's Reality Check and Career Crunch.

Students may choose to participate in some of these events even if others in their school do not. Examples are listed below:

ACE stands for Architecture, Construction and Engineering - the three cornerstones of the construction industry. ACE is an after-school program for high school students who are interested in learning about career opportunities in Architecture, Construction, Engineering and related construction professions.
