YOU MUST SIGN THIS WAIVER TO ATTEND: bit.ly/ct19waiver

Join Tana McCoy, iTouchUp and Hacker Fund for a free week of technology workshops, recruitment and resource fairs for middle school, high school and college students as we bridge the digital divide in Compton! We've enlisted professionals from TikTok, Riot Games, Adobe, Cal State Dominguez, Road to Artdom, and more to teach fun and creative workshops in all things technology. We are excited to provide free resources that promote S.T.E.A.M. education in the City of Compton. *LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED DAILY*.
