Tech to Offer High School Manufacturing Programs
Georgia Tech has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to provide manufacturing education programs to high school students. The base development contract includes about $1 million for the first year, with the potential of $10 million over four years to expand the projects.
The Institute will provide prize-based educational challenges for high school students, encouraging them to use the latest technology to design and build items such as wind-turbine blades, mobile air and ground robots and electric car bodies — in hopes of inspiring the next generation of manufacturers.
