(December 7, 2022) ATLANTA, GA - The STEAM Generation (TSG) partnered with Amdocs to provide a special workshop for elementary students to boost knowledge and self-confidence when it comes to the engineering field.
Amdocs Quality Engineering Services, a global software and services provider to communications and media companies across the world, provided a generous $10,000 sponsorship for The STEAM Generation. The funds provided to TSG will have long-term effects as the organization continues to work for underserved communities of metro Atlanta. TSG plans to use the funds to provide more STEAM hands-on project-based learning workshops that happen in the school or through after-school programs.
The Rockets Day Aerospace workshop was hosted on November 29, 2022, in celebration of Giving Week. 45 students ranging from 3rd to 5th grade at Bryant Elementary School in Mableton, GA were able to participate in the free after-school program. A dozen employees from Amdocs also volunteered to assist the students with their projects, teaching them about the engineering design process. Students designed, built, and then launched their own rockets.
“Engineering, while daunting, isn’t as difficult for students when they break the process down,” says TSG Founder, President, and CEO Maureen Myrie. “That’s exactly what The STEAM Generation and workshops like this are for. We want to empower students and let them know that if they want to succeed, they just need to set their minds to it.”
