Last year we described the mission, vision and rationale for the project: developing a model for educating K-12 and higher education students capable of succeeding in a flat and diverse globe. GTEC provides an alternative approach to developing the 21st century global workforce through a unique international mentorship and collaboration among K12, higher education and business/industry. 

This year we will report on progress with two pilot programs. In the first program, students from Spirit of Knowledge Charter School, Worcester, MA, and Haywood Engineering College, UK, teamed up to create a ‘global classroom’ to solve an energy optimization problem. In the second program, Newburyport High School joined undergraduates from Olin College of Engineering in a problem-oriented co-design project to reclaim wasted energy. Both pilot programs received technical support from Parametric Technology Corporation, Needham, MA / UK.

Further discussion will include next steps involving additional partners abroad and at home.
