Black Family Technology Awareness Day

Black Family Technology Awareness Day at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is designed to interest area young people and their families in pursuing occupations in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) fields, and the arts.

On Saturday, February 4, 2012, Rensselaer will host the 14th Black Family Technology Awareness Day event. The theme for the event is, “Tetherless Training for Tomorrow’s Technologies: Heroes, Role Models, and Mentors,” which pays homage to our past, present, and future leaders in science-related fields.
Black Family Technology Awareness Day is a great opportunity for young people and their families to get a taste of the excitement and possibilities of careers in science, technology, and engineering fields. There will be workshops led by Rensselaer professors, students, alumni and community organizations.

The event is free and open to the public. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at fam-tech@rpi.edu.

Participants receive a light breakfast and lunch, and participants under the age of 18 will have an opportunity to win a new computer and other door prizes/give-a-ways during our closing ceremonies (you must be present to win). T-shirts will be available on a first come first served basis.
