Kids In Technology was founded in 2002 to reward honor roll students with an opportunity to build their own computers and take them home. KNT was the first Black own STEM summer camp, the only summer camp taking an aggressive approach to close the digital divide, and one of the few STEM summer camps in the country implementing authentic STEM enrichment education. Over the years, we have continued to meet the STEM challenges facing families and schools. KNT is always working in partnership with educators and community stakeholders, following our fundamental belief in leveling the technology playing field for underserved students. Pierced into those early summer camps are the same core values of Kids In Technology today, the importance of providing empowering STEM education programs that give learners an opportunity to discover the power of technology, motivate them to stay in school, and prepare them to compete globally.
