Bridging the Digital Divide
Founded in 2003, Techathalon was designed to help young people ages 6-18 in our communities gain technical fluency by providing a fun venue for them to showcase and build their technology skills. Through the sharing of information and ideas, participants maximize the learning experience while making friends and being recognized for their accomplishments.
Techathalon features four Challenge Events encompassing graphic design, technical know-how, productivity software mastery, and general technology knowledge. In addition, participants can explore cutting-edge technology tools in the Exploratorium - a fun-filled science, technology, engineering and math carnival.
The inaugural Techathalon, hosted by The Arizona Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs in Chandler, Arizona, boasted more than 165 participants from 29 Clubs, with 87 volunteers donating their time.
Since that time, almost 600 Boys & Girls Clubs members have
participated in Techathalon. Through the community's participation and/or sponsorship, Techathalon will continue to grow and prosper!
