Massachusetts awards $160,000 grant to technical school for biofuel training

August 2, 2018 |

In Massachusetts, Greater Lawrence Technical School received a $160,000 grant from the Baker-Polito Administration to implement a clean energy program as part of their STEAM curriculum.

GLTS is one of just three schools statewide to receive the allocation from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, which will be used to prepare students to pursue higher education majors and careers in the clean energy field.

As part of GLTS’ STEAM Innovation Program, students pursuing biotechnology will research, develop and implement clean energy fuel sources through the design and planting of green roofs along with growing algae for transportation (biofuel). They will also learn the importance of design and technology as it relates to solving energy, social and community issues.
