Beginning in middle school, students can join the MOUSE Squad, which trains them to become technology experts in their schools. As 11th and 12th graders, students can start to design new technologies in the MOUSE Crops. After selecting a service-orientated theme, the MOUSE Corps members design, test, and refine technologies that benefit other people. In this excerpt from American Graduate Day 2013, hear what MOUSE students have to say about the program.
You can find PBS LearningMedia support materials about how MOUSE is engaging middle and high school students in technology and engineering with a mission of learn, lead, create, collaborate with tech projects. You’ll find a handout and discussion questions in the teacher’s resources to help prepare for a technology or engineering partnership at your school.
