Workforce Industry TrainingIn parternship with the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) and the Texas Engineering Expermentation at Texas A&M UniversityThis program is for high school students who have an interest in expanding their knowledge and understanding and /or careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). More specifically, the program is designed for mentoring and encouragement to prepare students for STEM-rich programs at universities, two year technical colleges, and technical certificate programs. By participating in WIT, students gain exposure to higher education and career opportunities while building the confidence to consider further STEM education. While the founding emphasis is based on nuclear energy and technology applications, the program is broadly open to all aspects of STEM applications.What do WIT participants at Granbury High School do?
Achiving Together with Optimistic Mentoring (ATOM)
The ATOM program is a year-long commitment between the WIT member mentor and the mentee. Mentees will consist of at-risk students from Granbury Middle School who have been selected by their campus administrators. The objective of the program is to increase sense of self worth, improve perspective toward STEM education, develop and define short-term and long-term goals, encourage social awareness through community service projects, and build positive relationships and support networks with adults and peers.Granbury ISD Sponsor: Kelly Been and Jose Ochoa
