New Tech @ Wayne

"Every student deserves this chance - to be taught critical thinking skills, to work with others (collaboration), to use technology as a tool, to work on fine-tuning oral and written communication skills, to understand what it means to have a strong work ethic, and to be able to apply what they learn to the real world. We are preparing students for the 21st century....how is that not good for every student?" Liz Bryan, Director, New Tech @ Wayne
