Our JA BizTown® keeps getting better! Thanks to new sponsorships from Signature Technology Group (STG) and onTop Corporation, we are opening a Tech Store in JA BizTown to support youth entrepreneurship education.
Signature Technology Group and onTop’s “Tech Store” provides hands on experiential learning for students on the role of technology (computer hardware and software) in the work place. It also provides a key learning into the importance of technological proficiency to be successful in modern companies.
The Tech Store will be in Junior Achievement of Arizona’s (JAAZ) educational facility, JA BizTown. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Monday, October 14 at 4:30, at the JA BizTown facility at JAAZ’s headquarters in Tempe.
STG has a wonderful partnership with JAAZ, including representation on the board of directors.
“Junior Achievement is thrilled to add Signature Technology Group and onTop Corporation to our JA BizTown community,” said Joyce Richards, president of Junior Achievement of Arizona. “This is a new partnership, and this is a wonderful way to commemorate that collaboration.”
Students who participate in the JA BizTown program will obtain a better understanding of how important it is to learn STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) skills to survive in the 21st Century. They will also learn to make important financial decisions for themselves and their families.
Kevin Nohl, CIO and Vice President at STG, and Board Member at Junior Achievement, said, “It is our privilege to introduce a Tech Store in JA BizTown that promotes science and engineering for the youth of Arizona. The role that technology plays in the work place becomes more and more prevalent every year. We are pleased to provide an experiential learning program around technology and to join the other existing businesses in JA’s incredible BizTown.”
