Network Cabling

Work + Wealth

Course: Mission Breakout

Description: The focus of Mission Breakout is configuration, the arranging of elements in their proper sequence. It’s the physical code of telecommunications. Students learn to crack that code and troubleshoot the same kind of problems a real technician must solve in the field. Through hands-on activities, they practice fine motor skills and conformance to standards. Through collaborative activities, they experience cooperative learning and the challenge of putting their newfound knowledge to the test in head-to-head competition. Open-ended reflective practices and expository writing assignments sharpen language skills as well
