Our Education Web Site Has Doubled in Content, Adding Mathematics and Science Model Projects

Carlene Ellis, Vice President, Diversity and Education, Intel Corporation While reviewing our accomplishments from 2001, I am reminded of the many educators, parents, business leaders, employees, and government officials who have worked with us to improve education worldwide and ensure that youth are well prepared for the future. Many of you reading this report have played a significant role in Intel's efforts this past year. All of us at Intel would like to thank you for your dedication and support!

Last year was a fantastic year for Intel Innovation in Education. By the end of 2001, over 300,000 teachers in 24 countries had been trained to use technology effectively in the classroom through the Intel® Teach to the Future program. Intel also announced a new pre-service option for the program as well as expansion opportunities that will allow us to reach an even greater number of teachers in 2002 and beyond. By the end of the year, we had worked with our technology partners to set up a total of 40 Intel Computer Clubhouses to provide access to the latest technology and technical skills for children in underserved communities in five countries. The Intel Science Talent Search students walked away with $530,000 in scholarships and met with the President of the United States. Over 300 Intel employees volunteered at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, held in Silicon Valley.

It's been a Wild Ride for our Education Web site this year. It has doubled in content, adding mathematics and science model projects for professional development, a database of exemplary curriculum units, and a dynamic interactive walk through a computer called The Journey InsideSM.

Intel's partnership with higher education expanded in 2001 with the initiation of new programs that focused on increasing the pipeline of students completing engineering, computer science and related degrees. Additionally, formation of Intel's Research Network of Labs, located at key universities, brought a new paradigm to collaboration between industry and education.

Intel's president and CEO, Craig Barrett, was very involved in the education arena last year. He served as co-chair of the Business Coalition for Excellence in Education (BCEE), the ad hoc group of over 70 leading corporations that actively campaigned for the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and its education reform components. Dr. Barrett is also a board member of Achieve, an independent, bipartisan, non-profit organization of governors and corporate leaders working to help raise academic standards and achievement in U.S. public schools. In November 2001, Craig Barrett's contributions were recognized publicly when he was honored by the National Alliance of Business with the Founders Award for his "significant leadership and commitment in fostering education and workforce excellence."

2002 will be even bigger and better. We expect the total number of teachers participating in the Intel Teach to the Future program to exceed 500,000. The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network will expand to 65 clubhouses worldwide. The Intel Science Talent Search and the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair will reach more than a million students. Our Web site,, will continue to grow adding dynamic tools for teaching, resources that support innovative leadership, and a new project called An Innovation Odyssey, a global visit to technology-using classrooms around the world. And of course, our employee volunteers will continue to be our greatest asset in our communities around the world.

As I said last year....stay tuned to this page. Talk to you again in 2003.
