2019 Verizon Innovative Learning Registration - Girls

In summer 2019, sixteen community colleges will partner with Verizon Innovative Learning to introduce middle school girls in rural parts of the country to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills. Launched in partnership with the National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE), the 2-year program was piloted in 2017 at five community colleges. In 2018, eleven more community colleges joined the program making the total program reach 1,500 middle school girls.

We and the participating community colleges are excited to join the Verizon Foundation’s mission in ensuring that all children have an equal opportunity at success in a digital economy as partners under Verizon Innovative Learning. Through this program, middle school girls will learn skills like coding, 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality and entrepreneurship through on-campus summer intensive courses, as well as monthly engagements during the school year.

  • The camp will consist of a three-week intensive learning experience including courses in augmented and virtual reality, coding, 3D design, entrepreneurship and design thinking principles. Please note: Dates and times vary by community college location.
  • Following the summer, the students will participate in monthly sessions throughout the academic year where they will develop a technology solution for a community problem that aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Please note: Dates and times vary by community college location.
  • Lunch, refreshments and transportation to/from the community college will be provided to the campers at no-cost during the summer sessions.
  • Each camper will receive a Verizon Ellipsis 10 tablet to keep, provided that they attend 80% of the camp programming.
