In The Community Technology Awareness Day - BNSF

Technology Awareness Day



BNSF's Technology Awareness Day is part of the National Black Family Technology Awareness Week. The national campaign was started by IBM, and aims to "promote significant minority achievement in engineering, science and technology." Corporate-sponsored events are held nationally during a week in February.

This year’s event will take place February 24, 2024 as a hybrid event with the option to attend virtually or in-person. Our theme this year is Shape your Journey: The Power of Technology. It will also be the 25th anniversary of BNSF's participation in Technology Awareness Day.

This event aims to educate youths about careers in the technology field and challenges attendees to design and develop their own technological solutions that are judged at the event.

BNSF leaders hope you can join us for the event in 2024!
