The Tech-4 Educational Consortium is a group comprised of K-12, community college, university and industry representatives from counties contiguous with Interstate 4 across Florida.  The Consortium formed to address the need for full educational participation to accomplish workforce development goals in microelectronics and technology education.  Its members are drawn from Brevard, Hillsborough, Polk, Seminole and Valencia Community Colleges, the Universities of Central Florida and South Florida, Seminole County Public Schools and Cirent Technology.

 In August they visited MATEC as part of a three-day cross-country immersion in microelectronics educational programs.  In addition to partnership discussions with MATEC, the group visited labs and facilities at Arizona State University, Mesa Community College and Motorola University.
