  • Arconic Awards CAA $25,000 for 21st Century Learning

    The Creative Arts Academy kicks off its school year with great news from Arconic and the Arconic Foundation. On Wednesday, Arconic announced it will continue to support the Academy’s 21st Century Skills Learning program. 

    CAA served as the pilot or trial site utilizing a specific version of the model with a focus on the role of the arts in developing 21st Century Skills of communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. The project includes creation of assessment tools to measure the impact of project-based arts integration on the development of 21st Century skills and the impact it has on academic achievement and workforce readiness. 

    The use of this curriculum better prepares students by making them more engaged in the learning process and ready to graduate more equipped to thrive in today’s digitally and globally interconnected world. The program aligns with Arconic’s initiative to provide quality STEM opportunities in education and training worldwide with a special emphasis on engaging and creating access for underrepresented and under-served groups.

    Arconic is a leading innovator in the world of engineering that transforms the way we fly, drive, build and power.

    Thank you, Arconic!
