FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 10, 2021 – The results are in! Edge Factor and our partners empowered 650+ locations across North America with a free Summer Camps toolkit to inspire Grades 5 -8 students to explore careers and see STEAM come to life. The Summer Camps toolkit was available in June, July, and August for students, schools and families to access on the Edge Factor platform. This turnkey toolkit equipped families and summer learning programs with engaging videos and interactive, hands-on activities to help students discover industries, careers, STEAM in the real world, and soft skills on-the-job. Summer Camps 2021 is officially closed for free but it will continue to be available for Edge Factor’s Premium members.
The Summer Camps Toolkit received 1600+ page views!
With 1600+ page views across 18 School Districts (representing hundreds of schools), 16 individual schools, and 8 Postsecondary institutions, 590 families, students, and guests hosting summer programs, events and presentations, this content was seen by tens of thousands of people.
In the US, 381 locations, across 31 states and in Canada, 91 users across 8 provinces accessed the Summer Camps toolkit. We are also excited to share that this toolkit was also accessed globally by 185 locations across 8 countries, such as China, England, Ireland, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, and Singapore.
