Collaboration to Realize Equity and Teach Engineering, in association with NI and Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area
The C.R.E.A.T.E. (Collaboration to Realize Equity and Teach Engineering) program is designed to inspire and prepare a diverse pipeline of future engineers through afterschool engineering education, youth development programming, and family engagement.
C.R.E.A.T.E. supplies hands-on, interactive engineering design experiences for underrepresented youth throughout Austin, and fosters interest in engineering and science for a whole new generation of young learners.
The program is a collaboration between Thinkery, NI, and Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area. Through hands-on and play-based activities, BGCAA youth will ask, research, imagine, plan, create, test and improve, becoming proficient in all the fundamentals of the Engineering Design Process. These small-group learning sessions later culminate with a dedicated Field Trip experience at Thinkery for participating BGCAA clubs.
Special thanks to our partners for their leadership and support of the C.R.E.A.T.E. program
