Geospatial and Robotics Technologies for the 21st Century (GEAR-Tech-21) aims to prepare youth for Twenty-first Century careers in Science, Engineering and Technology through GPS, GIS and robotics. Youth can participate in camps, club or afterschool activities and competitions led by adult volunteers to explore technical skills, career opportunities and life skills such as problem solving and teamwork.
We are now recruiting clubs and afterschool programs to be a part of this exciting project. To begin clubs and afterschool programs will need an adult leader and a group of a least 10 youth who are willing to participate in the program for two years. Adults leaders will be provided training prior to the camps. During the school year clubs and afterschool program should plan on meeting for about 10 hours per month.
