Title III

Crowder College Department of Education Title III 2010

START – Strengthening Training in Alternative Energy and Related Technology

The Missouri Alternative and Renewable Energy Technology (MARET) Center is a comprehensive, cutting-edge, living energy producing facility encompassing programs in Biofuels, Solar and Wind Technologies. The Title III program is designed to transform these programs into viable, accessible options for students – many of whose economic disadvantage has prevented participation in both rewarding and globally critical careers.

Title III is supporting student preparation for high skilled, high technology careers through improvements in “core skills” with new computer labs and instructor training.  Core skills such as reading, writing, math, computing and physical and life science promote high-quality learning and preparation.
