A group of school administrators, teachers and students from Sonora, Mexico that will be visiting Metro Tech for its first academic, cultural and athletic exchange. They are part of the DGETI School System which focuses in preparing students academically but also offers career and vocational training.

Teachers from both countries will be collaborating in designing an interdisciplinary project that will address global issues. Students from both countries will learn about each other by participating in shadowing experiences and working on a Project-Based Learning activity. Metro Tech students will be able to experience the Mexican culture as our visitors perform a Ballet Folklorico presentation. Also, as part of the exchange, the Metro Tech Soccer team (2nd place State CAA) will play an exhibition against the Sonoran soccer team, November 19 and both girls and boys basketball teams will play against the visitors, November 20.
