Rochester, NY, June 22, 2020 – Boundless Connections Technology Center in Rochester, New York announces its summer camp schedule. The TECH Unleashed summer camp for 13-17 year-olds is 30 hours of guided exploration of various technology including 3d printing, audio/video editing, coding/programming, smart tech and automation, and virtual and augmented reality. Registration for this camp is now open and space is limited.
Community engagement, leadership, teamwork, diversity, flexibility and digital responsibility are interwoven into the program as participants become an integral component of your community tech center.
All participants have the opportunity to lead and be a part of other teams. This program actively discusses stereotypical barriers and how to overcome them together. Participants are empowered to become stewards of technology, assisting others, and bridging the generational digital divide. Recognizing technology is a powerful tool, this program is a constant conversation on how to use it to build instead of destroy.
TECH Unleashed projects are selected by participants in service to the community. As a result, many of our participants offered internships and other job opportunities as soon as they have working papers. While the community service projects are the glue that keeps the group focused on developing their tech skills, participants also get help with project and time management, public speaking, research, and networking.
In order to comply with COVID19 safety regulations, each session is limited to 20 participants. The sessions are either morning or afternoon for two weeks (Monday-Friday) on August 3-7 & 11-14, 2020 or August 17-21 & 24-28, 2020.
The TECH Unleashed program meets at least once a week year-round with half or full day camps during breaks and over the summer because tech literacy is a constant state of learning. Participants engage at their own pace so they don’t have to try to keep up… or wait up for others. This means they can participate in the arts/sports and pick up where they left off.
“Closing the economic and generational digital divide is a vital component of human progress,” said Christina Lopez, founder and owner of Boundless Connections, LLC. “We are excited to expand our technology centers to Rochester, New York which is known for its technical education and world wide businesses.”
The Boundless Connections Technology Center at Sibley Square in Rochester, New York provides a focal point for young and old with various skill-sets and interests to collaborate and utilize the power of cutting-edge technology. It is the second location for Boundless Connections which has it’s pilot in Olean, New York.
