Tech Gives Back 2018 Guppy Tank!

This was a big week of volunteering in the tech community for TUGG’s TechGivesBack 2018. We at Building Impact are thrilled to be part of the scaling from 200 students last year to over 400 students this year! Thanks to all the companies that opened their doors to the students, Boston Foundation, TUGG and our amazing partners at Boston Public Schools!

 

On October 16th, 2018 over 400 Boston Public School students visited 20 tech companies for a hands on immersive STEM experience that helped students gain insight into the marketing and product side of the business. The students worked in small groups with company volunteers to co-design and prototype an app that helped address a problem around healthy living. At the end of the day, each of the student groups had an opportunity to pitche the protoyped mobile app to a panel of judges.

 Thank you  Salsify, Buildium, Asics Digital, Endurance, Whoop, Nift, Toast, WeWork, Wistia, YesWare, InsightSquared, Globoforce, Imprivata, Bullhorn, Rapid7, Robin, Accomplice, Carbon Black, and Hopper!
