Mission: The MAPS Media Institute is a preeminent, nationally-recognized education program that integrates science, technology, engineering, the arts and math (STEAM) concepts within media arts subjects. Our mission is to create an environment that motivates students through a hands-on computer science, media arts and digital technology curriculum that includes film, design, cyberskills and music. For over ten years, we’ve delivered on our promise to inspire creativity, build confidence and develop capacity for our public and home-schooled 8th - 12th graders. MAPS graduates are ready to contribute and succeed in the 21st Century economy.
Results: 2013-2014 results include: 1) MAPS founder, Peter Rosten, awarded a national Purpose Prize fellowship. 2) MAPS students nominated for 4 "Awards of Excellence" (Student Emmy Awards), 3) 85% of MAPS students attend college. 4) Only four MAPS students (out of thousands) have dropped out of high school.
