Verizon STEM Camp
Verizon Innovative Learning was created in 2012 and has, to date, given over a million students the support they need to further their STEM literacy. They provide the technology and curriculum necessary for schools to enhance student learning experiences and, in turn, better their future.
Every student deserves access to a better future. That's why we've launched the Verizon Innovative Learning STEM Achievers program- an engaging, hands-on program developed to enrich learning through design thinking, 3D printing, augmented reality, social entrepreneurship and mentorship. This program creates a more diverse pipeline for future careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields; no prior knowledge or experience is required.
“Nearly two-thirds of middle-school kids who don’t have technology are revising their dreams and lowering their expectations for their futures,” says Rose Kirk, Verizon’s Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer.
In another attempt to create equality in STEM, Verizon holds summer camps for both girls and boys in STEM. By creating individual STEM camps, Verizon is helping to shrink the gender gap that is still prevalent in almost every area of the STEM workforce. By giving these young students an opportunity to build their love for STEM, they are increasing the chance of them pursuing a STEM major in college.
