Kids STEM Camps
TECHNOLOGY ENABLEMENT PROGRAMS
Technology seems to be everywhere, unless you’re in a remote rural town where access to technology tools remains scarce. Insufficient Internet connectivity and lack of access to technology devices have left many rurally-located households even further behind in the socioeconomic divide. This divide is especially felt by our youth in these communities. Through our STEM coding camps, we’re giving kids a glimpse into how I.T. can be a pathway to self-sufficiency. With an unemployment rate of less than 1% in I.T, a career in technology is a secure choice for children hoping for economic stability and career opportunity.
These camps have been supported by Google in the form of teaching aid for their program Grasshopper®️. We’ve also implemented Scratch coding, which makes programming easy and fun for children. These camps take place currently every 3rd Saturday of the month in the Provalus facility in Brewton, Alabama. We will soon be expanding into Jasper, Texas as well.
With a mission of self-sufficiency and life enrichment, The TGB Foundation is thrilled to enable the youth in rural America to develop skills that ensure their future is bright.
