TechTown featured with UTC and Howard School in UTC News Article!
A new agreement between UTC, TechTown and the Howard School will directly benefit UTC students.
The goal of the two-year partnership is to enhance programs at Howard that focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Students from UTC’s College of Engineering and Computer Science and College of Health, Education and Professional Studies will help conduct some of the programs.
TechTown has been in a partnership with Howard for the past three years, bringing STEM-related programs to the school, says Chris Ramsey, CEO of the organization, a local learning center that offers hands-on technology programs for teachers and students in second- through 12th grades. By working with Howard students, UTC will “show them what is possible” with engineering, he says. “It’s a recruitment pathway.”
All three groups will work together to apply for STEM-related grants.
