TALON – How it started

The program emerged from a request from the Polk County School District for specialized summer enrichment programs that would provide interdisciplinary, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning experiences for middle and high school students. The ultimate outcome of the program is to keep students engaged in the learning process through hands on, active learning as they connect STEM content to educational pathways and the professional careers.

Polk State College works as a partner with the Polk County School District to design, implement, coordinate, register, host, and administrate the program. Expertise, personnel, and materials are selected from exemplars within both organizations to develop a robust, sustainable, and unique learning option for students. Polk State College has been honored to facilitate STEM development, including robotics and digital media development at all levels of the curriculum to create pathways for student success.
