ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech says it will receive $7.5 million from the U.S. Department of Education's Race to the Top program to expand science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs through its outreach center.

Georgia Tech officials say the program will introduce new courses for students, and the school also will continue to expand the Georgia Intern-Fellowships for Teachers program that places high school teachers as partners in summer internships in industry and university research.

Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson says the program not only increases access to math, science and engineering courses for students and teachers, but also creates a more educated workforce and helps develop future leaders.
