Grand Opening at NAN Newark Tech World 9/20

September 20, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

NAN Newark Tech World, located at 400 Hawthorne Avenue, Newark, NJ, is a technical school that was developed as a bold initiative by former President Obama to upskill low-income residents for high paying technical jobs.  The school is free of charge and is a certified CISCO Academy which offers training in Digital Literacy, CISCO, Coding, and 3D Printing, to name a few.




NAN 2016 Technology Tour Expands To Newark, New Jersey

Newark based Tech World features three (4) 21st century classroom learning environments outfitted with state-of-the-arts computer workstations in each classroom. Tech World is strategically located to have its broadest impact on Newark citizens with an administrative staff to address the training needs of Newark Citizens. The program dovetails with the White House’s Computer Science for all initiative where Newark students between the ages of 8-14 will become one of the primary beneficiaries of Tech World’s after-school computer science training program.

Newark youth will be offered programs in STEM, STEAM, Robotic, coding and software development (working with the Newark’s rich college community) while young adults and seniors will be able to pursue and engage in basic and intermediate computer training skills and other technology programs.

By hosting digital literacy sessions, hackathons, technology career events, and connecting students and adults with tech innovators in their communities, Tech World is bridging the divide through information. By partnering with local businesses and/or other partners like churches, Tech World also seeks ways to donate new technology to people within the community who are active in the Tech World programs. Through the education, connection to technology professionals and access to equipment, we address the technology divide in Newark.
