General Electric is taking STEM education on a new journey. It believes its new mobile lab will excite young students and reduce the skills gap.
Kelli List Wells is the Executive Director for Global Education and Skills at the General Electric (GE) Foundation. Her portfolio focuses on building education, skills, and training initiatives to prepare the next generation for the demands of the workforce and the changing labor economy both nationally and globally.
Wells sat down with Machine Design to talk about GE’s new mobile lab. Wells’ hope is to spread STEM interest and education in Boston-area schools, and eventually the nation. Wells talks a little about her background, why GE made a mobile lab, and what equipment is inside.
