Join the ACS AWS GetIT Club and embark on an exciting journey of discovery and innovation! By becoming a part of this club, you’ll have the chance to engage with the AWS GetIT program—an educational initiative and competition meticulously crafted to ignite the curiosity and passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) among 12- to 14-year-old students, with a special focus on encouraging participation from girls and other young individuals from underrepresented backgrounds.
AWS GetIT is an educational program and competition designed to inspire all 12- to 14-year-old students, especially girls and other young people from underrepresented communities, to consider a future in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
During the program, students explore different types of tech careers, and learn how to use cloud-based apps to solve real-world problems in their communities. Students build confidence through collaborating, brainstorming, and presenting in teams as they leverage new skills in design thinking and the app design process. AWS also offers opportunities for students to explore other AWS programs during or after finishing AWS GetIT.
So, if you’re eager to explore the world of STEM, create impactful solutions, and be part of a supportive community that champions innovation, don’t miss out on the chance to join the ACS AWS GetIT Club.
