The Lowell Housing Authority in partnership with Kids In Tech completed one week of this year’s program which runs through April 2023. Led by Victoria, Marsha, of Kids in Tech and a duo of interns from Umass Lowell, the program meets in the afternoons on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the agency’s Highland Parkway and North Common Village family properties.
Kids in Tech strives to excite, educate, and empower children to acquire skills and confidence in technology through these interactive after school programs. Their programs help to inspire the next generation of kids to seek careers in the STEM fields and offer the necessary tech skills and aptitudes to participate in and be future leaders of the 21st-century innovation economy.
To kick off the week, the group created their own avatars for use in the program and was exposed to some basics of responsible behavior when interacting with others in online environments.
We look forward to continuing to provide these programs for Lowell youth. If you are a resident of Lowell with children interested in joining the program, there is still time to register!
The deadline to register is Tuesday, November 1st.
