Hero and Project Description: 

Furr’s innovative teaching idea, “Inspiring Innovation,” focuses on inspiring curiosity and learning for the students at Cabarrus Early College of Technology. Through the use of programmable TI-Innovator software, students involved in the program will have an opportunity to build their collaboration skills and learn to effectively problem solve. With the Voya grant, the students will no longer have to read about biology, physics, or mathematics concepts, but rather be able to manipulate data and information to see how the concepts actually work. Furr’s program will provide new depth to mathematical and scientific understanding and allow the students to be innovators in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), building a curiosity and understanding of coding and design thinking with them throughout the rest of their lives.
