Building a Brighter Future
By 2020, 77% of US jobs will require technology skills, yet millions of students lack access to technology and resources to help them thrive in a digital economy.
Verizon Innovative Learning (VIL), the education initiative of the Verizon Foundation, addresses this issue by providing free technology, free access, and innovative curriculum to students impacted by the digital divide.
We at Shawnee State University are excited to be a part of Verizon's mission of bringing next-gen technology and innovative curricula to middle school girls as partners under Verizon Innovative Learning, the education initiative of the Verizon Foundation.
Through the program in 2018, SSU joined 15 other colleges across the country to teach young girls in middle school skills like coding, 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality and entrepreneurship through on-campus summer intensive courses. The three-week summer camp took place from July 16 through August 3, 2018. Females entering grades 5-9 participated, and monthly engagements will continue during the school year.
This camp will be offered again in the summer of 2019. Check back for details on this

Verizon Innovative Learning has invested $200 million in STEM education efforts, reaching more than one million students. Learn more about Verizon Innovative Learning education initiatives at www.VerizonInnovativeLearning.com.
