Samuel S. Gaines Academy of Emerging Technologies has been awarded a UBTECH Early Innovator Grant! SGAET is the first and only school in Florida to be awarded an Early Innovator Grant, and just 23 schools across the nation received the award. UBTECH Education is a division of UBTECH—a global leader in intelligent, humanoid robots for consumers, business, and industry. Now, students will have the opportunity to work with UBTECH Robotics UKITs to practice engineering, coding, and apply their understanding of science and mathematics to create fully functioning robots. The students’ robots will be used to complete tasks in simulated real world scenarios. Per the U.S. Department of Commerce, college-educated STEM job-holders earn up to 39% more than non-STEM employees. In addition, between 2016 and 2026, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that jobs in STEM fields will grow by 10.8%. At SGAET, we expect our students to be on the cutting edge of future technology. They will build and live in a world of limitless potential. #SLPSMagnet

Northport students experienced a wonderful and festive time at the annual Port Saint Lucie Rotary Club Christmas party. Students were treated to lunch from the Olive Garden, met Santa Claus and received gifts. Thanks to Diane Crumpton and Tammy Boston for escorting our students.
