K-12 Programs: CIJE-Tech High School Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) We live in a technological world. Living in the 21st century requires much more than a basic ability to read, write, and perform simple mathematics. Engineering is the profession in which the knowledge of mathematics, science, and technology gained by study, experience and practice is applied to develop ways to utilize materials in nature for the benefit of society. Technology affects virtually every aspect of our lives, from enabling us to perform routine tasks to giving us the ability to make responsible and informed decisions that affect individuals, our society and our environment. CIJE-Tech High School Engineering Program CIJE is currently implementing a never before offered two-year course in Scientific and Biomedical Engineering for high school students. This innovative new curriculum prepares students for careers in engineering, programming and advanced technology. CIJE aims to educate a generation of students in Jewish schools so that they can enter and compete in the global marketplace. Mathematics Programs Through the various CIJE programs, students are becoming more proficient with numbers, learning to solve complex mathematical problems, and coming to understand how mathematical concepts apply to other fields, such as science, engineering, and biomedicine. In addition to the various CIJE programs, middle school students have the opportunity to compete in individual and team regional competitions.
