The Intel Education Initiative is focused towards incorporating research based learning at an early age so that children can develop 21st century skills and compete effectively in the knowledge based economy of the future. An effective education transformation can help countries increase student competitiveness, build job skills and competencies, support economic development and provide social cohesion.
Through research and work with local governments, vendors, and communities, Intel supports countries to drive a systemic education transformation. Intel has invested over $1 billion dollars and close to 3 million employee volunteer hours to improve teaching and learning environments in 70+ countries over the last decade.
