As many of you know, the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022 is in motion with proposals being requested by the Department of Commerce from industry and educational institutions. A few of us joined an American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) webinar today (Monday, May 22) and learned a ton about how community colleges can be involved in raising up our next generation of technicians.
If you are interested, you can watch the CHIPS for America AACC Briefing recording on Vimeo.
