A new video highlighting the Baker Technical Institute (BTI) debuted here today.
The Baker School District opened the institute in August 2014. It includes career pathways in construction, industrial and engineering systems, health services and agriculture. In addition to its offerings in career and technical education (CTE), the institute emphasizes science and math skills.
The institute was founded on the dual premise of preparing students for the workforce and creating economic development in a small community.
The video can also be seen on YouTube here.
The BTI video is the third of four planned videos for 2016 showcasing cutting-edge programs – science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), CTE, the arts and more. The videos encourage schools and the public to “dream bigger” about what is possible in Oregon’s schools.
