Every day we become more and more familiar with the growing movement to focus on making things green.Â Â 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.
Â 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:
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Georgia:Â energy, construction and transportation
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Illinois: energy, utilities and waste management
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â New Jersey: various industries
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Ohio: energy, biotech and agriculture
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 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.Â The academy participants will be involved in this process for 14 months.
