RIT and AT&T marked the launch of a new mobile tech lab on Tuesday.
The lab was created to provide public and charter schools across the Rochester region with resources and instruction to engage more students in careers that involve science, math, and engineering.
Students from RIT’s women in computing program are the teachers of the class. The mobile tech lab marks the first mobile tech educational program in the region.
“This type of program is really designed to change that to have young girls in middle school and high school were we know they often change their minds to learn about what computing is all about that its not just about writing code its about applying computing in all some really interesting ways,” said Anne Haake, Dean of Computing and Information Sciences.
The lab includes various digital devices to teach computer coding and other tech disciplines.
