The G.L.O.B.E. Consortium is pleased to announce our next course offering, a Spring 2018 after-school class for 10-12th grade students called "Green Technologies: What will it take?" This interdisciplinary college seminar-style course will introduce students to Green Technology concepts and challenges, through scientific, economic and political lenses. We are funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation to promote K12 STEM education in the field of environmental technology, and will be meeting at the MIT Campus in Cambridge.

The Spring 2017 session "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 15 students from four Boston area public schools: Boston Latin School, the John D. O'Bryant School of Math and Science, Arlington High School and Somerville 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.
We'll hope you'll want to join us next year!
