THE STORY:

Dr. Robert Gore wrote -

Young Ones Summer Innovation Camp, and is named after KAVI champion, and fallen staff member Willis Young. KAVI YOSIC is a 6 week summer camp incorporating engineering and design principles with social awareness. The program will use S.T.E.A.M. (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math) principles to develop viable, youth perspective plans, which tackle various social and environmental issues plaguing our communities. There is currently a major deficit of under represented minorities in S.T.E.A.M. professions. Having a diverse group of facilitators (Undergraduate/Graduate engineering, art/design/architectural, public health and social science students) can help to encourage participants to explore S.T.E.A.M. related professions early on, thus increasing the possibility of entering a S.T.E.A.M. related career but at the same time remaining socially conscious and relevant. This increases S.T.E.A.M. participation among urban students of color. In edition, KAVI YOSIC serves as a framework for establishing a potential pipeline between the universities from which our facilitators come from and the students.
