The first camp was June 28th & 29th for Rexdale’s STEM club. 20 youth met with mentors and teachers to learn skills and be empowered in tech, and they each took home a laptop! These camps will help the youth reach their dreams of being: program developers, biochemists, physicists, oceanographers, computer engineers, surgeons, bio medical engineers, archaeologists, and many other ambitious things!
