Community Improvement Through Science and Technology
NTA SPACE COAST MISSION
To assure science and technology serve the needs of disadvantaged communities by providing educational services, and enabling life improvement opportunities for underprivileged families to improve their quality of life through the access to computers, the internet, hands-on technical training, assistance with jobs search, and inspire underrepresented youth to learn technical skills to pursue STEM-based technology as a career objective.
STEM TECH NEIGHBORHOOD ACADEMY
STEM Tech is a diversity and inclusion initiative of the NTA Space Coast being fast-tracked in Brevard County's disadvantaged communities to help low-income families improve their quality of life through technology. STEM Tech represents the current work of the National Technical Association Space Coast Florida Chapter, and works to help close the digital divide that excludes disadvantaged communities by teaching technical skills to increase their marketable value for tech employment potential. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities are encouraged to youth during after-school and weekend engagements.
