  • A continuum of courses related to marine, ocean or water sectors 
  • Project-Based Learning (PBL) and Work-Based Learning (WBL) experiences in coordination with industry partners 

  • Opportunities to build relevant skills through paid internships 

  • Career pathway videos to build awareness of the breadth of career opportunities 

  • Site visits and industry speakers 

The BlueSTEM CTE Pathway is one of the exciting TMA – affiliated education and workforce development programs and we hope to create a model that can be replicated in other schools.
