IT Executives Get Update on STEM/STEAM Rolling into Atlanta’s Low-Income Communities

Recently a number of Georgia TechBridge Executive Ambassadors gathered to hear more from nonprofit executive director Jason Martin about STE(A)M Truck, a nonprofit organization making a big difference for pre-K – 12 learning by literally putting Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art) and Mathematics on wheels to improve outreach and impact in low-income communities

Access to hands-on building, tinkering, and project-based learning can increase access to STEAM/STEM careers and build the skills critical for long-term success. STE(A)M Truck’s 20-day program delivered via a mobile platform is designed to introduce the tools, expertise, and time needed for this results-producing learning often unavailable in public schools, and especially those serving low-income neighborhoods and school districts. Since , STE(A)M Truck has partnered with over 80 organizations and 1,300 educators to serve over 17,000 students in metro Atlanta.

The primary offering of Community Guilds, STE(A)M Truck is expressly designed to help Atlanta eliminate inequities and barriers to access, providing the first steps and a pathway to understanding Information Technology. TechBridge supporters such as the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, PwC, and the United Way have helped bring this transformative approach to traditional teaching and mentoring and to foster creativity and innovative thinking. Established Georgia nonprofits like our client Big Brothers Big Sisters have been able to integrate STE(A)M Truck into their existing program structures
