BILLERICA, MA — Shawsheen Tech (100 Cook Street, Billerica) hosted a popular Tech Jam program earlier this month.
Tech Jam is a partnership between Microsoft and Shawsheen Tech. For four consecutive days, students experienced a 90-minute “Activity Zone” at Shawsheen and were then transported to the Microsoft Store at the Burlington Mall to attend a 2-hour “YouthSpark Camp” where they learned coding. Students were then transported back to Shawsheen.
Tech Jam emphasizes technology discovery featuring demonstrations, interactive workshops, exhibitions and prizes to engage and inspire 6th through 8th graders while building awareness of STEM education and career paths.
