for expanding and enhancing financial options and opportunities.
Pathway#1 is for individuals who want to participate in the 21st Century U.S. SciTech-driven workforce of well-paying jobs with a future.
Pathway#2 is for communities that want to attract SciTech companies that will provide their residents with well-paying jobs with a future and improve the quality of life in their communities. Pathway#1 can be offered at a local high school that has a varsity football team and already has well-paying SciTech jobs with a future available for its graduates. The football coaching staff can offer SciTechPREP as Supplemental Schooling, that
improves their teams' win-loss record, while generating
supplemental income for the coaches.
Pathway#2 is a bit more complicated since it adds
the dimension of attracting well-paying jobs with a
future to communities that do not have a reputation for
having a highly skilled workforce. Pathway#2 has the advantage of access-to and
qualifying-for the plethora of Federal Grants available
for this type of Initiative. Dueto its multi-faceted approach, we have profiled
Pathway #2 as a text outline that offers a quick read
students/players to efficiently and affordably travel
the Pathways to Tech. These tools, techniques and
skill-sets are presented as “supplemental schooling”
that does not conflict with anything taught in current
US K-20 schooling — making SciTechPREP
exceptionally susceptible to Federal Grants. SciTechPREPis a 1 hour / twice a week / for 16 weeks "Protocol" that can provide students/players with the necessary how-to capabilities for developing their own 21st Century SciTech skill-sets and competencies for traveling the Pathways to Tech, including how-to connect-the-dots and build "Big Picture" perspectives. The Pathwaysto Tech have 5 lanes (aka, skill-sets) that can be traveled at different times, at different
speeds with performance standards, and some caveats.
Too good is not good in the workplace. Traveling the
Pathways to Tech are do-it-yourself (DIY) activities.
Students/players can learn how-to at SciTechPREP.com.

ShortForm: The PathwaysTo Tech — Skill-Sets:
Lane#1: Enhance verbal and visual communication
skills to SciTech collaborative workplace levels. Lane#2: Expand recall-on-demand knowledge/reference
capabilities. Listening to Lectures is a waste of every-
body's time. We only learn from discussions that engage
both speakers and listeners. In an exchange of information,
all participants' knowledge-banks should be expanded.
Learn how-to convert a lecture into a discussion. Lane#3: Tune up physiology and mental acuity. Accelerate recognition, reaction and appropriate response capabilities. Be quicker off-the-marks, "ahead of the curl" and anticipate the direction of the conversation. Lane#4: Putting a situation/circumstance into perspective
by acquiring "Contextual Thinking" skills. It's the core com-
petency in SciTech (aka, connecting-the-dots — to build a
Lane#5: Develop those Collaboration capabilities that are the rules-of-the-road to independence and success in the
21st Century SciTech workplace. (SciTech management = MBO + Collaboration.) (Google, building contractors, sailors, row-crop farmers, etc.)

going to incorporate "Silicon-Valley-esque metabolism" into Wal-Mart's workforce to improve productivity and profits.
Pathways To Tech can do the same for a community's workforce.
