The STEM..tacular Extravaganza

Register HERE


There are over 4 million available jobs in science and technology. However, millions of kids can’t compete for them because they lack access to technology and educational resources —leaving too many kids behind.   At Verizon, we believe that our technology has the power to help people lead better lives, solve problems in new ways and create lasting value. That’s why we’ve developed a program called Verizon Innovative Learning that provides free technology, free access and immersive, hands-on learning to students in need.  We  need more kids to see the world of possibilities waiting for them.   Come together with your coworkers, friends, and neighbors to help us lead STEM-related workshops for 250 students! Verizon Innovative Learning has teamed up with Jersey Cares to bring you the first ever STEM Challenge volunteer project at a historically underserved elementary school in Newark, New Jersey.
