Thanks to a federal grant of $1.3-million, Seaford High School has begun the Delaware New Tech Academy.
Delaware New Tech Academy uses a project-based model of education that has been proven to be successful at more than 60 public schools across the nation. Students are encouraged and taught to learn through creative use of technology, including computers, video and Smart Phones. 170 students in grades nine and ten are taking part in the program which began at Seaford in August. They are required to learn by completing projects in a way that prepares them for college and the workplace. Senator Tom Carper meets with students and teachers at Delaware New Tech Academy today (Monday).
