Crown Castle has announced a new partnership with University City Science Center to develop a telecommunications education program for high schoolers. The collaboration will benefit students in the Science Center’s STEM program for teens, FirstHand, which offers project-based and career-exposing programming to local schools and community organizations.
For this partnership, Crown Castle will work with FirstHand Philadelphia to create a telecommunications curriculum track for high school students in FirstHand Philadelphia’s Project Inquiry program. Project Inquiry is a 10-week program across eight-months, where students will be faced with a real-world challenge, and using technology, experts, and their own critical thinking skills, and tasked to find a practical solution. At the end of the program, students will present their findings and one project will be named the top idea.
