The TAF Bethaday Community Learning Center in White Center is accepting applications for STEM Up, their after-school tech program beginning in January.

TAF recruiting kids and teens for after-school 'STEM Up' program at new White Center location

STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

After many years of fundraising and building, the Technology Access Foundation finally opened the doors to their Bethaday Community Learning Center in White Center in October.

Located in Lakewood Park, Bethaday is a combination of things from a community gathering space to a technology-focused learning zone for children.

TAF is sending out word for their first after-school program set to begin in January. TAF explains:

Does your child love playing with video games or robots? Or does she like doing artwork and is interested in computers? If your kid is in 6th, 7th or 8thgrade, enroll him or her in STEM Up, a fun after-school program at Lakewood Park in White Center.

STEM Up focuses on science, technology, engineering and math. Your son or daughter can choose what they want to learn, whether it’s building and programming robots, designing video games on the computer, or doing graphic design. They don’t need to have any prior experience: we’ll teach them all they need to know to excel in the class. We’ll also help them get ready for college and for later employment in one of these high-paying careers.

Enrollment for classes that start in January ends soon, so call 206-725-9095 or go to www.techaccess.org right away to learn more. STEM Up is provided by TAF, a nonprofit that equips students of color for success in college and life through the power of a science, technology, engineering and math education.

The cost is $30 for a full semester of STEM Up after-school education, which helps pay for snacks.
