The School of Engineering and Biomedical Science is a place of education, enrichment, and change. Over the years the program has evolved. The 2021-2022 school year at SEBS began with the addition of three new teachers to our program; Mrs. Christine Musso, Mrs. Kristin Taylor, and Ms. Rachel Baker. Being a STEM program, SEBS experiences transformations in order to keep up with the current educational demands. It started as a relatively small program known as Pueblo Technical Academy with the only established strands being engineering and biomedical science which was only a one-year program. Over the years the biomedical science strand was added. This required changing it to a four-year program. Also welcomed is the addition of the computer science and creative technology strands.
The program itself has had its handful of adjustments such as a fluctuation in staff and the technology within the program. Teacher, Vicki Bowker says, “When we started as SEBS, students had a Dell computer which is a windows/pc machine and now we are on the third round of macs. The software that we use was originally on CDs but now we download the software.” In recent years a revolution in technology with rapid advancements in both software and hardware evolved. SEBS is part of the evolution revolution. This revolution is made clear. With every year new technology is added to the program, and with it, new learning opportunities.
