"Green Tech: What will it take?" spring 2016 session concludes successfully


Our spring 2016 offering, "Green Technology - What will it take?" was funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation to promote K12 STEM education in the field of environmental technology.

The course brought together 13 students from four Boston area public schools: Boston Latin Academy, Boston Latin School, the John D. O'Bryant School of Math and Science, and Watertown High School.  The students met for 8 class sessions at MIT to learn about the science, and the politics, of "green technology," culminating in a project fair where four groups of students shared their own tech and policy recommendations for addressing a particular climate change challenge they chose. The students presented to a panel of MIT professors and graduate students, entrepreneurs, and a representative from the Sierra Club.

Please watch our 7 minute promotional video below for scenes from class - we hope you'll want to join us next year!
