Tech Literacy Awards

Tech Literacy Awards

During the United Way of Central Indiana (UWCI) annual meeting and 100th anniversary celebration, UWCI awarded Cummins with the IMPACT in Education Award for their participation and partnership in the Tech Literacy Program and other educational programs. The Tech Literacy Program was created and developed by Health & Science Innovations (HSI) in partnership with Cummins and Salesforce. The Cummins Foundation awarded HSI with a $23k grant to develop the program. Tech Literacy provides computer and office productivity software skills to kids between 3rd and 8th grade with the purpose of empowering them to perform better in academic courses, and to expand their summer job opportunities. Lesson plans are developed in connection with state standards. During its first 18 months, the program has served nearly 300 students from Washington Irving School and from Thomas Gregg Neighborhood School. Tech Literacy has also received the Cummins Impact Award.
