Internships for All at New “Pathways in Tech” Schools

New York

Many science teachers struggle to connect classroom learning with real-world applications and careers. Three new high schools slated to open next fall in Brooklyn, N.Y., seek to bridge that gap through partnerships that ensure internships and training programs for every student, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports. IBM, for instance, is a “founding partner” of the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-Tech), billed as a program for students “drawn to future careers in information technology, computers, engineering, math and science.” The computer giant will provide all students with internships and training opportunities, exposing them to real-world tech careers. They also will be able to take classes from CUNY’s New York City College of Technology and earn college credit or an associate’s degree.
