competency innovation, or continuous workforce education, is about bringing the outside in.  regional demand sectors can become “stove piped” and easily left to atrophy in the absence of global connections.  The need to continually scan world markets, and connect to worldwide best practices begins in schools and extends across business sectors and throughout the workforce.

GT2’s national stem collaboratorium initiative seeks to connect national companies with local schools.   by bringing business experiences to the classroom, relationships are built and children are exposed and engaged in learning where knowledge is transferred in a new manner.
