April 12, 2012 — PROVIDENCE, RI — Dennis Littky, Co-director, today announced that the Met School’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (E-360) will officially open their doors with a grand ribbon cutting and Open House.

On Thursday, May 10, 2012, The Met School will celebrate Young Entrepreneurs Day by inaugurating its 3,600 square foot building dedicated to the study of entrepreneurship – a site that is the only stand-alone entrepreneurship center for high school students in the country. The event begins at 8:30 AM and will consist of an introduction to the entrepreneurship program at the Met, a keynote speech by Scott Case, a ribbon cutting, and tours of the facility. We invite you to join us and assist in making this event a huge success for the Rhode Island community.

The Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center (The MET) is a state funded public school district and local education agency, which serves 690 high school students in six small schools across three campuses in Rhode Island. To date, the MET has inspired an international network of over 80 similar schools, all founded by Big Picture Learning. Their mission is to educate and empower youth through relentless commitment to student-centered learning and personal growth and to lead vital change in education and impact our community by producing skilled graduates, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens who enjoy their life and work.

SCOTT CASE was the founding Chief Technology Officer at Priceline, is the Chairman of Network for Good, and CEO of the Startup America Partnership, an Obama administration initiative targeting entrepreneurs.

This event is presented by CVS/Caremark and sponsored in part by the Ahlborg Companies.
