Established in 2005 by The Arno Group in partnership with the University of Vermont College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, The Global Challenge engages parents, teachers, students and the community in a high-impact educational experience that teaches about complex systems and global engineering challenges while enhancing K12 education and strengthening the pipeline of students entering science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Recently funded by the ITEST program of the National Science Foundation, the program leverages existing online resources and networks and works collaboratively with other programs, such as UVM's Design TASC and the Engineering Summer Institute. We hope you take some time to learn about the project and find a way to participate, contribute, and help extend the goals of the Global Challenge. Our primary motivation is to prepare young people for the challenges of the 21st century by helping them build skills in disciplines necessary to succeed in a more complex, technologically-advanced world.
