The Richmond Innovation Center says it has created a computer science training academy for teenagers. "The Greenhouse," created with support from AT&T Indiana, will aim to prepare students for advanced coursework and potential careers in the computer science industry.
The Greenhouse is being funded in part by a $15,000 contribution from AT&T Aspire, which is the company’s signature education initiative focusing on student success and work force readiness. AT&T Indiana President Bill Soards took part in today’s announcement.
The center will work with Richmond High School’s 9th Grade Academy to recruit students. It will also partner with Girls Inc. to identify potential participants.
Local tech professionals will teach sessions at The Greenhouse. They will include material on robotics, 3D printing and software development.
