GETSMART

GETSMART, short for Getting Everyone to Study Math and Related Technologies, is an educational and mentoring program created out of an academic-industry partnership between local companies and institutions & Technology Management department and a non-profit technology based organization, the Tampa Bay Technology Leadership Association (TBTLA).

 

 

The Goal

The goal of GETSMART is to identify, influence and mentor 4th-12th grade students in Tampa Bay to pursue STEM related education and careers. The program strives to increase the number of young students who select math, science and information technology as further education or a career field by broadening the students’ understanding of the importance of these studies, and raising awareness that math, science and technology are interlaced into many careers.

 

About GETSMART

The US Department of Labor projects that Information Technology will continue as one of the fastest growing occupational areas over the next decade! This session will include the discussion of math, science and technology career trends, students’ perceptions of math, science and technology classes and careers, and several hands-on workshops. We offer numerous breakout sessions for the kids to experience first-hand how technology works. A few sessions are:

  • Interacting and learning about the key technologies and showing students how it’s applied in our society
  • Understand what drives a drone and how they are used now and in the future
  • Learning the basics of programming
  • Understanding Cryptography
