Every day we become more and more familiar with the growing movement to focus on making things green. The Education Department and the NRCCTE announced earlier this week that five states will have the opportunity to concentrate on green-focused programs of study through their participation in an NRCCTE Technical Assistance Academy.
The following states will receive guidance from a facilitator and access to content experts as they develop their green programs of study in the following areas:
· Georgia: energy, construction and transportation
· Illinois: energy, utilities and waste management
· New Jersey: various industries
· Ohio: energy, biotech and agriculture
· Oregon: wind, solar and energy
NASDCTEc is a partner along with AED and MPR in delivering this Academy which provides an outstanding vehicle to help these states develop their programs of study and provides a platform for their hard work and findings to be shared nationally. The academy participants will be involved in this process for 14 months.
