The VIPP Report: Creating opportunities for youth to learn about Science, Technolgy, Engineering and Math in a FREE 5-day camp


The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage will host the Youth for Technology Foundation’s 3D Printing Academy for Girls Spring Break Camp, from April 4th-8th from 9:00 am-3:00 pm at KCAAH located at 1701 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd.

Participants will get the opportunity to see how 3D images are made in movie production to understanding how 3D printing meets the neighborhoods health needs.

The five-day camp is free but registration is required with limited space so that each camper receives the creative instruction they need to explore the world of Science, Technology, and Engineering & Math (STEM).

All your child needs to bring is a sack lunch and their creativity so they can freely think out of the box.

The Youth for Technology Foundation has been teaching 3D printing technologies to inspire youth to develop a passion for science, technology, engineering and math to spark inventive imagination, and solve community problems in a fun and interactive way.

The camp was made possible by the generous support of the following: PPG, 3DSystems, HP, SolidWorks and the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage.

For additional information and to sign up for the camp please contact Njideka Harry, Project Director at (502) 410-5523 or by email at
