2018 Verizon Innovative Learning Registration

In summer 2018, eleven community colleges will join Verizon Innovative Learning to introduce middle school girls in rural parts of the country to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. Launched in partnership with the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE), the 2-year program was piloted last summer at five community colleges. With the newly added community colleges, the program will reach over 1,500 middle school girls.

We and the participating community colleges are excited to join Verizon’s mission in ensuring that all children have an equal opportunity to a brighter future in a digital economy as partners under Verizon Innovative Learning. Through this program, middle school girls will learn skills like coding, 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality and entrepreneurship through on-campus summer intensive courses, as well as monthly engagements during the school year. To learn more, please visit www.VerizonInnovativeLearning.com.

Details:

  • The camp will consist of a three-week intensive learning experience including courses in augmented and virtual reality, coding, 3D design, entrepreneurship and design thinking principles. Please note: Dates and times vary by community college location.
  • Following the summer, the students will participate in monthly sessions throughout the academic year where they will develop a technology solution for a community problem that aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Please note: Dates and times vary by community college location.
  • Lunch, refreshments and transportation to/from the community college will be provided to the campers at no-cost during the summer sessions.
  • Each camper will receive a Verizon Ellipsis 10 tablet to keep, provided that they attend 80% of the camp programming. 
  • There is no cost to attend this camp.
