From the Desk of the President
Please join me in support of a great program designed to increase diversity in STEM, specifically CYBER. Major Luke Wright, USMC (Retired) is leading an outstanding program at Columbia Heights Educational Campus (CHEC) in Washington D.C. With a very diverse and inclusive Naval Junior ROTC program that has sent several young men and women into commissioning programs, it is truly inspirational to see how young lives are being changed daily. Please consider supporting Major Wright’s students so they can attend a 3D Printer Camp run by the Cyber Bytes Foundation.
The cost for the 3D printer camp is $3,000 per cadet and the cost for the build your PC camp is $2,000 per cadet. These costs include all materials which the students get to take home, meals, and lodging for the week. The camp starts the 3rd week of July 2022. Funding is required 30 days prior NLT June 18.
CHEC NJROTC would like to send 6-8 students to one of these camps. The 3D printer camp is the preferred camp. Students are using school issued tablets/devices in school and their smartphones most of the time. Due to the access to other online mediums, they may not use the desktops they built again after camp; however, the 3D printer gives students the ability to build, create, and design assets they didn’t have the capability to do previously. The 3D printer connects well with arts, medical advancements, engineering, automotive industry, toy industry and much more. CHEC NJROTC appreciates any support that can be provided to develop our cadets into tomorrow’s leaders and innovators.
Please go to the Cyber Bytes Foundation link below and specify “This donation is for Major Luke Wright’s Navy JROTC / CHEC campers” in the memo block.
