Thank you to all HPHS EGT pathway supporters, including key partners:
ReadyCT is supporting the Hartford Public High School Engineering & Green Technology Pathway (HPHS EGT) — a STEM-focused community igniting students’ passion for learning!
Based on the NAF educational design model, this pathway offers themed engineering/green tech instruction informed by an industry advisory board that serves as an essential bridge between school and the workplace.
A year-round work-based learning curriculum teaches employability skills (e.g., time management, teamwork, work ethic, and communication skills), how to use Microsoft Office and Google Workspace, financial literacy, and business writing so that students are well prepared for internships, and beyond.
HPHS EGT students are stellar. See for yourself. Follow this link to meet a few of them!
If you are interested in learning more about the EGT Pathway, the students, or work-based learning opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Having Diego as an intern was a pleasure. He worked on a project to make our public outreach efforts much more efficient to the benefit of the department and the communities we serve. Diego translated documents that help satisfy federal requirements for providing language assistance, and he has positively contributed to the overall energy of the office with his enthusiasm, motivation, and positive attitude.
Number of Participants: 200, grades 9 through 12
Theme: Engineering & Green Technology (EGT), with required courses including Introduction to Engineering Design, Principles of Engineering, Automation & Robotics, and Computer Science Principles
Graduate Outcomes: For the Class of ‘23, 90 EGT students graduated and enrolled in college
Opportunity: For the 2019-20 academic year, 11 EGT students were dual enrolled (high school & college) and working toward industry-recognized credentials
Other: EGT students can participate in FIRST Robotics, an engineering competition where students collaborate during the year to solve a robotics challenge.
A Note About Internships: Paid internship experiences are made possible through the generous support of the Gawlicki Family Foundation. For 2022, over 25 HPHS students had paid internships, and the Gawlicki Family Foundation has pledged to continue supporting paid internships at HPHS through 2023.
Gianna completed an internship with MarkerspaceCT in the summer of ’21. She also completed an internship with Pratt & Whitney in the summer of ’22.
“In my past internships, I learned how to use computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D modeling & printing software. I also learned skills that will help me in my future career like teamwork, communication, time management, and problem solving.”
Overall, Jonathan has completed two internships with Pratt & Whitney. And he is now in his second year in the Early College Advanced Manufacturing Pathway (ECAMP) at Goodwin University.
“Because of my internship experience with Pratt & Whitney, I now want to pursue a career in Environmental and Safety.”
Xavier completed an internship with MarkerspaceCT.
“At my MakerspaceCT internship, I learned how to use computer-aided design (CAD) software, welding, carpentry, and many other large manufacturing machines. And these skills will be very helpful me in my career pursue as an Electrician or Carpenter.”
We remain grateful to Hartford Public High School for their partnership with this effort. We offer continued thanks to Raytheon Technologies and the Gawlicki Family Foundation who provide the resources necessary to make this inspired learning pathway a true opportunity for hundreds of public school students in Hartford.
