Madera Technical Exploration Center (TEC) is an optional half-day program for 8th Graders in Madera Unified. Students that choose to attend Mad TEC, will still attend their home middle school for half of their day and will come to Madera TEC for either a morning or an afternoon program. 

 

 Students in the Agriculture Lab at Madera TEC will receive their English, Science, and Agriculture elective credit while incorporating FFA.  The curriculum is designed in a hands-on project-based approach and agriculture is the common theme in all 3 subject areas!
