STEAM ACADEMY 2022
T.D. Jakes Foundation is hosting the third annual STEAM Academy Hackathon June 6 through 17, 2022. The Hackathon, presented by the Dallas Mavericks and powered by Goldman Sachs, is a free two-week immersive experience in technology and innovation for 500 students ages 14 to 18.
During the two weeks, students will work in groups of five, guided by a Goldman Sachs engineer as their group counselor. They will learn the engineering process, including how to listen and learn, ideate, how to prototype an idea, and how to communicate with impact. Their mission will be to use the powers of technology and an engineering mindset to hack their way to an innovative solution to one of the world’s toughest challenges.
