Ah so this is the magnet engineering program?

The Alderman e-mailed me a while back to let me know that Harlan has a magnet program in engineering. I didn't think to really check it out until I saw this link for this on Harlan's official website. Well one of their official websites. I'm very curious to know what kind of students would be attracted to such a program.

Also check out this description of Harlan on the CPS website:
Harlan offers a college prep and Education To Careers (ETC) program. Harlans Math, Science and Technology Academy (MSTA) boasts state-of-the-art science laboratories, math mini-labs and three computer labs. Through College Bridge and Excel, students can take classes at Chicago State University and other colleges. ETC programs are offered in carpentry, information technology, software applications, web design, Tech Prep, Occupational Prep, Licensed Practical Nursing, and Police and Firefighters Academy. Honors classes are offered in all core subjects. Advanced Placement (AP) classes are offered in English, history, science and math. Harlan is the only high school in Illinois with the prestigious NASA Explorer School program. Initiatives include an interdisciplinary curriculum, teleconferencing, and hands-on, engaging activities.
Very cool!
