Programs

The major scientific agencies of the United States — including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) — agree that climate change is occurring and that humans are contributing to it. In 2010, the National Research Council concluded that "Climate change is occurring, is very likely caused by human activities, and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems". [1] Many independent scientific organizations have released similar statements, both in the United States and abroad. This doesn't necessarily mean that every scientist sees eye to eye on each component of the climate change problem, but broad agreement exists that climate change is happening and is primarily caused by excess greenhouse gases from human activities.

Scientists are still researching a number of important questions, including exactly how much Earth will warm, how quickly it will warm, and what the consequences of the warming will be in specific regions of the world. Scientists continue to research these questions so society can be better informed about how to plan for a changing climate. However, enough certainty exists about basic causes and effects of climate change to justify taking actions that reduce future risks.

In CABPES’ JETS program for 2016-17, each class will be looking at an aspect of climate change and developing a project that can help society deal with the changing climate. The classes offered this program year are;

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Bio Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Construction
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Fun with Micro-controllers
  • Lego Robotics

Junior Engineers, Tomorrow's Scientists (JETS)

JETS
program is designed to develop student interest in engineering and applied sciences. In each course, industry professionals volunteer their time to teach and advise students. Field trips are often added to the curriculum to study engineering and science principles in practical applications. Lastly, each class offers projects and "hands-on" opportunities for learning.

     Courses 
  1. Aerospace Engineering
  2. Architecture
  3. Ad Astra (To the stars): Interdisciplinary Approach to Science
  4. Construction Management & Construction Principles
  5. Lego Robotics
  6. Fun with Microcontrollers
  7. “Synergy”: Multi-Topic:

    (Electrical: DC & AC Currents; Electrical: DC & AC Currents; Climate Change; Bioengineering)

 

    Math Enrichment Program

    CABPES
    offers a variety of options in its Math Enrichment Program to ensure that the needs of the students are met. These include:

    Math Tutoring    

    • Offered two nights a week
    • Supported by math tutors
    • Provides an intensive middle math program for students who are struggling

    Math Classes    
    • Help Available with Basic Math, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus; Help Available with Biology, Physics, and Chemistry as well.
           

     

    SAT/ACT & College Preparatory Program

    CABPES 
    provides assistance with college preparation including a class to help students prepare for the SAT and ACT college entrance examination. This program is an important element of the CABPES youth educational support program. The course is based upon College Board and Princeton Review (the test makers) recommendations and utilizes their teaching materials, test taking tips and practice tests.

    This course will familiarize students with the following:
    What is measured by SAT/ACT, the structure of the test, test taking tips to enhance performance, major concepts of the SAT/ACT and strategies for each section of the both tests.
