Great Things STEM From Tri-C Youth Technology Academy
April 23, 2015
Students in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math have the chance to meet with like-minded teens through Cuyahoga Community College's Youth Technology Academy. The program offers kids the chance to flex their STEM muscles with projects like building robots. They can interact with mentors, too, and, ultimately, gain skills that will be valuable when it comes time to find a job.
Students need to have good grades and take college courses to be part of the academy. The program serves more than 600 students from 18 high schools. Some student compete in local, state and national competitions.
Cleveland.com recently did a long feature about the program with lots of photos.
