Black Family Technology Awareness Week, or BFTAW, is a national public awareness campaign designed to encourage more African Americans to incorporate technology into their daily lives.  The purpose of the event is to help eliminate the science and technology gap among members of the minority community.  By showcasing science and technology in a fun and  interactive way, we endeavor to motivate more minority students to pursue careers in these fields. It’s also an exciting time for students and
families as they spend a full day immersed in a variety of fun and  interactive workshops.  Visit www.blackfamilynet.net for more information.

 

Please share our BFTAW event flyer with family and friends!
