For the NPR Student Podcast Challenge, the Academy of Culinary Arts class explained on how impactful CTE is for students coming out of middle school. The students that participated are Scott Nemeth, Jason Arnold and Anastasiya Kuzmenko. As 10th graders, we have so many great opportunities being full time academy students and how quickly you mature in this scenario. We explain how important CTE is and the benefits that come from it. The podcast was recorded with XLR microphones to a H6 Zoom that was mixed and exported to MP3.
