AS2I is an innovative program that promotes career readiness in the high-tech, high demand fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Structured programming is conducted on a weekly basis in conjunction with the annual school calendar.
Field experiences are scheduled on Mondays and Tuesdays for middle and high school students and are limited to 150 students per day. Upon arrival students are divided in to groups (maximum of 25 each) and will rotate through three 30-minute modules instructed by certified park rangers and biologists at Lake Lotus Park and three 30-minute modules instructed by chemists and engineers at the Altamonte Springs Water Reclamation Facility and Environmental Laboratory. Modules are aligned with K-12 Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science.
