A Summer Program for 21st Century Skills and STEAM Career Readiness in NYC
The two-week Techbridges residential program is designed to provide high school students with an inspiring, hands-on experience in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). The program will focus on career readiness and 21st Century skill development, including:
Students will be exposed to a wide range of eye-opening experiences with an agenda comprising interactive project-based activities; teaching, training and guest lectures from industry professionals, university professors, alumni and current students; site visits to technology labs or companies; and design, production and research activities. These activities will culminate in a final group project in which students will design and develop a game or interactive media tool that addresses a social issue or problem.
