20 Amazing STEM innovations by kids across the United States
What happens when you provide kids and teachers — who have limited technology access — with their very own tablets and round-the-clock access to Internet? Or when you give thousands of ambitious, community-driven kids training in entrepreneurship, app development and access to science, engineering, technology and math professionals? Some truly amazing things.
Across the U.S., Verizon has committed $160 million in free technology, free access, and immersive, hands-on learning to kids in need, and the results have been phenomenal.
Here, we show a map of 20 of those innovations. Young rappers and poets driven to make their work better through tablet-based feedback. Dancers and movie makers who create art abetted by code. Or, kids committed to making their own futures better by building apps that improves the ecology and safety of their neighborhoods.
The most amazing part is that these young futurists are just getting started.
