TEEN EARNS ASSOCIATE TECH DEGREE FROM IBM-INSPIRED SCHOOL17-year-old Oscar Tendilla, who took just 3.5 years to complete a six-year, IBM-inspired program that confers both high school diplomas and associates degrees, graduated in a commencement exercise held by New York City College of Technology at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on June 5, 2017. Oscar had attended P-TECH Brooklyn, a prototype that has grown into nearly 80 schools worldwide that provide technology-oriented workplace and classroom experience for 'New Collar' -type jobs, or as the foundation for bachelor's degrees. Tendilla, the first in his family to obtain a college degree, and who helped his mother successfully study for her own high school equivalency degree, is now headed to Cornell University. Approximately 100 students have already graduated so far from the original, IBM-affiliated P-TECH schools in Brooklyn and Chicago. (Feature Photo Service)

TEENS EARN COLLEGE TECH DEGREES FROM IBM-INSPIRED P-TECH SCHOOLNine young women and men earned their associate degrees in technology from Daley College at the commencement held by the City Colleges of Chicago at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, IL on May 13, 2017. These young trailblazers are Chicago's first early graduates of Sarah E. Goode STEM Academy, an innovative education model that launched in 2012 in partnership with Chicago Public Schools, Daley College, and IBM. The program gives students the option to complete a six-year program with both a high school diploma and an associate degree in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Some of the graduates, such as Anissa Del Rio and Marcos Montero (second and fourth from left), will finish the program in as little as four years, getting their college degrees four and a half weeks before receiving their high school diplomas. The IBM-inspired P-TECH schools are designed to open new pathways to better prepare young people for college and for new collar careers in some of the nation's fast-growing fields that require sought-after skills that can be learned through innovative public education models like P-TECH, which IBM pioneered. There are currently nearly 60 P-TECH schools in six states across the US. IBM is committed to work with educators and businesses to create an additional 20 schools in the U.S. by this year's end.
