Kids in Tech 1

Kids in Tech is a STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) focused afterschool program for students in Lowell and Boston, MA. We are looking for volunteers who work in a STEM based profession to speak with our students about your career path at our various program sites. We prefer volunteers to come in person, but can accommodate a remote visit if needed.

We hope that your stories will help inspire our students to consider careers in technology. Remember that elementary and middle school students respond well to hands on, interactive, show and tell type information and presentations. Show them the equipment you use, the safety gear you wear, and examples of problems you try to solve. Our program manager can help you be sure to keep the students engaged.
