Verizon and NIACC Team Up for Summer Camp

Mason City, Iowa – Starting in early July, NIACC and Verizon teamed up to offer a STEM summer camp. 50 girls from the northern part of Iowa participated.

This program put on workshops for girls focusing on science, technology, engineering, and math. It also introduced the girls to the fundamentals of augmented reality, coding, 3-D design, entrepreneurship, and design-thinking principles. The girls were assisted by female mentors.

The percentage of women in STEM careers has remained the same since 2001 and through this program, that number looks to rise.

This program ends on July 28th but the girls will continue to do monthly activities and complete their augmented reality projects through the college.

He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
