MUNCIE, IN—TechWise Academy powered by the Innovation Connector, is excited to announce that they have been chosen as the Region 7 leader for the 2023-2024 Indiana Afterschool Network Regional Leadership Project.
The project is a partnership with Million Girls Moonshot, to identify out-of-school time STEM programs to operate as Regional Leaders, setting an example of high-quality STEM programming across Indiana and supporting other STEM programs in their efforts to begin, strengthen, and/or deepen their STEM practices.
The Million Girls Moonshot initiative is designed to spur girls’ interest, understanding, and confidence in STEM and equip them to become problem solvers with an engineering mindset. The Moonshot will not only allow girls to envision themselves as future innovators, but it will increase the quality of out-of-school STEM learning opportunities for all young people, particularly underserved and underrepresented youth.
“We’re proud of the work we’re doing to introduce computer science to students in our area and the organizations that we’re already partnering with, “ said Mikayla Rainho, Elementary Education Lead Instructor at TechWise Academy. “We’re excited to share our programming and best practices with other organizations in our region to help impact as many children as possible.”
