As part of our ongoing effort to cater to the well being of our MX families, while continuing to cultivate the growth of STEM in our community, MX is excited to announce it is hosting the four-day (Aug. 7 to 10) CodeChangers STEM Summer camp, starting today!
For kids ages 8 to 18, the Utah-based CodeChangers organization provides a "unique technology education experience with an on-line, self-paced program that is easy to use and carefully mixed with hands-on activities designed to help inspire creativity and connection to real-world projects. MX is hosting the camp this week on the first floor of our offices at 3401 N. Thanksgiving Way in Lehi.
On Wednesday, 13 of June, 28 junior and senior high school girls from a dozen high schools -- all interested in technology -- visited our MX campus in Lehi, Utah.
