The many skills and areas of knowledge Biomechatronics will introduce to students create opportunities for students to continue their studies beyond their time at Markham Woods Middle School. One of the goals of the program is to help students find their passions and create plans for their futures to make sure they are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. Biomechatronics students could create their own pathway into a number of different exciting opportunities.
There are several high school magnet programs that specialize in areas of study similar to what the students will learn in Biomechatronics. Crooms Academy for Information Technology and the Seminole High School Health Academy are great opportunities for students to take their skills and experiences in Biomechatronics at Markham and build them into promising careers. Seminole State College and UCF also offer degrees in engineering technology and robotics. The Seminole Technology Business Incubation Center and Sanford Industrial Park offer career opportunities to students who have learned soldering, circuitry, and microfitting from the Biomechatronics program. Careers in robotics, computer programming, and electronics will only grow in the next few decades, and the Biomechatronics program can be a stepping stone for students interested in those careers.
