Tennessee's Maury County Schools, located about 50 miles from Nashville, has embarked on an ambitious K-12 STEAM initiative in one of its communities. My story (with photos) about the resurrection of Mount Pleasant is the lead story in this issue of the Association of Career and Technical Education's magazine, Techniques. Read more about it here.

I shot three conferences for national nonprofit organizations — the Association for Career and Technical Education, the Entomological Society of America, and the Independent Educational Consultants Association — in November and December.
Highlights from each conference are now up at http://glenncook.virb.com/meetings-conferences. Check them out!
Two new freelance articles and several of my photographs appear in the current issue of three national magazines. All have been uploaded to the website and are now available for viewing.
• Several photos from last fall’s trip to Zurich, Switzerland appear in the Association for Career and Technical Education's March 2017 issue of its flagship magazine, Techniques. The trip focused on how Colorado schools are adopting facets of the Swiss apprenticeship model, which ACTE delves into with a feature and Q&A with the Swiss ambassador to the United States.
• Simple Logic, which is in the current issue of American School Board Journal, is a technology column that focuses on the need for more computer science and coding classes in K-12 schools. Today, only 24 states allow students to count computer science classes as part of their high school science credits. While more than a half million computing jobs are unfilled in the U.S., just 42,969 computer science students graduated into the workforce in 2015-16.
• LMJ Scholarship — Atticus Lee: The sixth in a series of stories about recipients of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s LMJ Scholarship appears in the current issue of Diversity & The Bar.
