A Florida high school has launched a curriculum that is part of the New Tech Network and focuses largely on hands-on learning and the development of problem-solving skills. The curriculum -- in 130 schools in 23 states and Australia -- is in place for the Flagler Palm Coast High School's ninth- and 10th-grade students this year, but it will expand to 11th and 12th grades in two years. "The feeling is, this model is something we're going to be duplicating in all of our classes," Assistant Superintendent Jacob Oliva said.
