Edison GETA Lighthouse Academy focuses on student teamwork through cross curricular hands on activities that culminate in a showcase the 4th quarter of each school year.

Edison GETA (Green Energy and Technology Academy) has always put student growth and student need first. It is the reason our focus has always been on team work through common assignments across all four subject curriculums. Through the dedication and concentrated effort of the teachers Edison GETA has had a 100% graduation rate, above average Work Key scores, and several graduates move into the energy or energy related fields.

At the March conference we are presenting:

Revive the Lost Art of Electronics

The iPhone in your students’ pockets are 100 million times more powerful than Apollo computer that took astronauts to the moon. Our world is awash in cheap, incredibly powerful, high student-interest electronic devices.  Yet these days few students even know how to solder. At Edison, we capitalize on the present day access to an incredible array of cheap Chinese components and circuits, to create a curriculum that gets “A’s” in Student Engagement, AND Useful Skills Mastery.  Come to our Make and Take workshop to see what YOU can create.

Agenda: 8 am – 3 pm, Viewing and providing feedback for student projects from 8 am – 12 noon, Lunch and senior student input from 1230-130 pm, teacher panel 1:30-3 pm.
