New Environmental Science and Technology Career Pathway Program + Lab

New Environmental Science and Technology Career Pathway Program + Lab


The district is also pleased to announce that we were recently awarded $350K in Mass Skills Capital Grant funding to launch an Environmental Science Career Pathway program–complete with the design and construction of an Environmental Science Lab at Barnstable High School that will break ground in January, 2020. The Town of Barnstable has also allocated $1M to create the classroom and instructional space. The new lab will include the necessary industry-grade equipment, giving students the ability to conduct sampling techniques and analysis related to municipal waste and drinking water treatment–opening up a potential career path both on-Cape, and off. Approximately 70 students representing grades 9 and 10, as well as some upper classmen that will benefit from this career pathway through graduation, have enrolled in the new program for the fall 2019.
