TechPoint Foundation for Youth (TPF4Y) Partnership

TPF4Y is expanding its VEX robotics programs to elementary and middle schools that feed into participating iDEW high schools, supported by iDEW's $2.6 million dollar 3E grant from the Indiana Department of Education.

The TechPoint Foundation for Youth also helps iDEW high school students participate in its Xplore program, to develop their professional skills and discover paths to careers in STEM professions.

Our Programs

Google Data Analytics Certification & College Credit

Thanks to our IDOE Explore, Engage and Experience (3E) grant, iDEW is able to offer high school students the opportunity to earn Google Data Analytics certification AND take classes for college credit.


iDEW and TechServ are coordinating the after-school and out-of-school opportunities for grades 6-8 at the ROCK Community Center, part of Eastern Star Church, on the eastside of Indianapolis.

STEM @ The Rock will allow middle-schoolers to brainstorm about career possibilities in tech, and chart an educational pathway to align with their technology career goals.
