Once a student has selected a career path in which they are interested, he or she can begin exploring which type of Immersion SAE best provides the opportunity for enhanced engagement in that field. This provides students the opportunity to validate that the chosen career area aligns with their interests and abilities. The individual learning guides for Immersion SAEs walk the student through the process of setting up an Immersion SAE aligned to their career. Starting an Immersion SAE before the Foundational work of career exploration occurs could lead a student into a “project” that may not provide the career preparation that is essential for students to graduate with a well-defined career path.
