The Makos Engineering at MAST Academy is the breeding ground for students wishing to pursue a career in one of the diverse engineering disciplines. The academic rigor and hands-on experiences of Makos engineering opportunities allow students to gain experiences that rival many college experiences. Makos Engineering graduates continue their education at prestigious universities like UF, Florida Tech, MIT, University of Michigan, Stanford, CalTech, Georgia Tech, and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC). Our "hand-on" curriculum (and maker-space shop) allow our students to build projects at a college graduate level that impact both MAST Academy and the greater Miami community. Our projects include furniture making, underwater robots, building classic arcade systems, ninja-warrior style obstacle course, roller coasters, zip-line course, esports, and entrepreneur product creation.
Applied Engineering Technology
Applied Engineering Technology is a 4-year vocational curriculum allowing students to carefully plan and build their own solutions. Students learn proper techniques for hand and power tools, learn to work in teams, and learn project planning and accounting alongside the engineering skill sets.
School clubs create small communities. They attract people who share the same interests such as in music, arts, or sports. Club activities help students develop a sense of unity and teamwork, learning how to work with others in reaching the same goals. They help learners develop social skills.
Mr. Miller is the sponsor of four after-school technology clubs.
There are many other opportunities for parents to help the prestigious engineering program at MAST Academy.
