The Center for Technology Literacy of the College of Technology
in partnership with the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center at the
University of Houston was recently awarded a grant by the Economic
Development Administration (EDA) of the Department of Commerce that
seeks to work with the Greater Houston Area Technical Industry and K-16
Educational Community and provide an interdisciplinary cluster of
technical assistance in the form of experiential educational workshops
in a variety of fields. The vision is that increasing the communities'
technical fluency translates into higher performance, better paying
jobs, and economic growth. Thanks to the EDA grant, workshop costs to
the participants are reduced to a minimum. Instructors are highly
qualified practicing professionals and workshops are held in comfortable
facilities at the University of Houston.
