As we gear up for what promises to be an exciting school year for TECH CORPS – we just wanted to take a moment to celebrate our BEST SUMMER EVER!!!
Thanks to an amazing group of sponsors and partners in just 10 weeks this summer, we implemented 72 programs and served more than 1200 students and 41 teachers.
A few highlights…

Total number of camps offered this summer increased by 40%, and with a leadership investment from Nordson Corporation Foundation, TECH CORPS expanded Techie Camps into Atlanta, GA; Providence, RI and Trenton, NJ.
