TAD BNSF Days 2016 – A GREATMINDS supported event.

ATW took part in BNSF’s Technology Awareness Day which is part of the National Black Family Technology Awareness Week. The national campaign was started by IBM, and aims to “promote significant minority achievement in engineering, science and technology.” Corporate-sponsored events are held nationally during a week in February.

BNSF began hosting the event in 2004, and attendance has grown every year.

This one-day event takes place at BNSF’s Fort Worth headquarters’ campus and is a local version of the campaign that aims to educate local minority youths about careers in the technology field and challenges attendees to design and develop their own technological solutions that are judged at the event.
