Administrators, School Boards, and Teachers
Your staff and school district can experience the same exciting success that has been demonstrated by the "Hot Rod High" concept. Fred Beyer consultant is available for in-service programs and summer workshops. Inquires have been received from California to Maryland.
You may be asking yourself; "why in the world would I bring in this guy to work with our teachers". Fred's motivational energy is contagious! By combining humor, music, and positive attitude, he shares his belief that we are working with the Thomas Edison's, and Henry Fords of the next generation. Technology education is often downplayed rather than recognizing that it also reinforces academics, demonstrates relevancy and application to students who wonder why they are learning. Many students who may not perform well in other areas could be considered "gifted and talented" with their abilities in their problem solving technical education courses. One of the several mottos he conveys is "If you DREAM it, we can BUILD it". This approach uses knowledge and skills of the present to transfer to the challenges of the future.
He will work with your existing programs and recommend the best way to get the ball rolling. Some districts do not have the facilities, tools or resources to build custom cars. Several alternatives will be offered such as go carts; custom cycles, even canoes, or bicycles. (Remember the motto!) Fred will emphasize the concept that it's not as important as; what you build, as why and how. Believe me that when I leave the staff and administrators will be pumped up!
