TD Jakes Foundation is about to prepare 500 students from the ages of 14 to 18 years for the future when it comes to employment and securing a financial future through STEAM Academy 2022.
The T.D. Jeakes Foundation will host the 3rd annual STEAM Academy Hackathon from June 6 through the 17th. It is for this two weeks that the teenagers will be immersed into technology and innovation for the future, gaining experience in Adobe Photoshop and Premiere and much more along with the engineering and creation. The importance of this Hackathon is to prepare the students for a future of working that has changed from times past.
During May 22nd Potter’s House worship service, Bishop T.D. Jakes explained how times have changed, and now even robots have taken the place of what used to be work for the people in times past. This doesn’t mean that there will not be jobs in the future, but there will be different types of jobs, so this STEAM Academy Hackathon aims to start students on the path for working in the future.
This Hacakthon is absolutely free and presented by the Dallas Mavericks and powered by Goldman Sachs. Another great thing is that it is absolutely free!
