Summer 2023 - July 17th - July 21st, 2023
The “Innovate for Good” initiative in the Walker College of Business at Appalachian State University aims to promote interdisciplinary and collaborative activities to arrive at innovative solutions to address social problems. The primary goal of the initiative is to increase diverse students’ awareness about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education and career paths. In addition, there will be research projects that investigate technology problems and practice themes that help advance under-represented groups in STEM education and the workforce.
