Verizon Innovative Learning brings technology and resources to underserved communities, particularly middle school and high school students to spark their interest in STEM and inspire them to become the creators of tomorrow.
In the summer of 2015, we launched a program designed to help young minority men achieve success in school and in the jobs of tomorrow. Verizon Innovative Learning is providing middle school boys with coding, 3D design, STEM and robotics skills through hands-on interactive instruction and mentors.
Working in partnership with Digital Promise, we provide tablets with two-year data plans to every student and teacher within a school. We also provide training to enable meaningful learning opportunities in and out of school that leverage mobile technology to prepare students for college and STEM careers.
The app challenge, part of Verizon Innovative Learning, is a national competition that challenges middle- and high-school students across the country to concept a mobile app idea that could solve a real world problem in their community.
