George Evans Junior High School Pilots new Gateway Design and Modeling Curriculum (Spring 2016)

George Evans Junior High School (McLean Unit 5, Normal) served as a Gateway Design to Modeling (DM) curriculum update pilot site during the spring 2016 semester. Led by Gateway Master Teacher Kathryn Rabolt, several hundred students were among the first in the country to experience the unit’s new focus on design, medical science, and computer science. National PLTW marketing staff visited the school, filming and interviewing students who shared their prototypes of toys designed for children with cerebral palsy.
