The Academy of Global Logistics (AGL) is a career technical education program developed in collaboration with the Port of Long Beach and the Long Beach Unified School District and with support from the Center for International Trade and Transportation. Students enrolled in the program, implemented at a high school in Long Beach, CA, learn global logistics and supply chain management over the course of their high school career. The program culminates in a capstone project that is evaluated by industry leaders. This research project applies qualitative coding methods to find connections between the AGL curriculum and CA mathematics and science curriculum standards and AGL curriculum and project-based learning. The project’s findings identified that the AGL curriculum provided students with numerous opportunities to engage in mathematics and science practices in a project-based learning environment. Recommendations for policymakers and higher education institutions are discussed in order to advocate for best practices to serve California's youth.
