Brilliant Boston is working to bridge the gap between education and industry, classroom and career, and the economy of the future and the skills of today.  Through this effort, the GE Foundation has developed the GE Brilliant Career Lab (BCL) – the first-of-its-kind interactive experience and mobile lab that combines experiential learning with career-readiness planning in high-demand STEM fields.  The mobile and virtual (www.brilliantcareerlab.org) GE Brilliant Career Labs are bringing students and real world careers together.  They have partnered with pilot schools and non-profits in Boston to create exemplar models at the middle, high school and community college level.  Finally, the GE Foundation is offering workplace learning experiences such as summer internships and job shadow days to Boston high school students.  Collectively, these efforts are preparing students with the skills to become the critical thinkers, problem solvers, and innovators of the future.
