Quincy Public Schools was recently awarded $138,224 to create an engineering technology program at North Quincy High School that will train students over three years to enter jobs as mechanical, civil, biomedical, agricultural, and electrical engineers. With this grant, the school will purchase tilt chairs, monitors, 3D printers, Mimio Teach interactive software suite, and Project Lead the Way equipment for hands-on instruction and experimentation. The new equipment will allow students to work on the same software and equipment that is used in manufacturing and engineering design. This program is supported by business partners Boston Scientific Corporation and General Dynamics/Bluefin Robotics.
In early October, the Baker-Polito Administration awarded $9.5 million in Skills Capital Grants to 32 high schools, community colleges and educational institutions that will use the funds to purchase equipment, modernize operations, and boost enrollment capacity in career training programs. With these awards, the Administration has awarded more than $36 million in Skills Capital Grants to 78 different educational institutions over the last two years.
Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Polito created the Workforce Skills Cabinet in 2015, bringing together the Secretariats of Education, Labor and Workforce Development and Housing and Economic Development to align education, economic development and workforce policies, and to strategize around how to meet employers’ demand for skilled workers in each region of the state.
