While I with Parametric Technology Corporation's Global Education Team, we invented the Real World Challenge. This presentation was designed for the U.S. Department of Energy. The Global Education Team at Parametric Technology Corporation continues to lead the effort. The challenge is currently offered in 25 states by their respective governors and departments of education.

Using an experiential learning model coupled to an exciting national challenge process, our goal is to mine the best and the brightest; increase the number of students entering science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields and foster innovation across the United States.

To achieve this objective, we will transform real world, leading edge scientific and engineering pursuits from Department of Energy Labs and Industry into Real World Challenges. To solve these leading-edge pursuits, students assume "professional" roles on global design teams and work with authentic simulation and modeling tools while being coached by scientific and engineering mentors. During the Real World Challenge, students “become” Global Engineers, Mathematicians and Scientists seeking to invent, design and build scientific and technology-based products.
