Neustar, Inc. today hosted a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Career Event in its San Francisco office to recognize KIPP Bayview Academy scholars who successfully completed the My Digital Life program, a digital education course designed to help young students to be responsible technology users.
Neustar joined forces with education technology company EverFi to give more than 4,000 students across California access to the My Digital Life program. During today’s event, KIPP students toured the office, met with Neustar employees and listened to Neustar and EverFi executives speak about potential future careers in technology.
My Digital Life is an interactive, web-based course that combines instructional design, rich media, and real-world simulations to educate teens about technology and careers. The four-hour curriculum informs students on the “nuts and bolts” of how technology works, while placing them in virtual environments to tackle issues including privacy, security, cyber bullying, digital relationships, and the viral nature of the web.
