Morgan Welcomes Future Entrepreneurs to BizTechKids Summer Academy

Morgan State University recently hosted 18 Baltimore City and County secondary students for BizTechKids, a two-week summer business academy. The students, ranging in age from 10 to 15 years old, learned skills and information about entrepreneurship and technical assistance in creating a start up business.

Wayne Garrus, age 12 and Iyana Arrington, age 13, expressed their own accounts with BizTechKids sharing. Wayne stated “This was a really fun experience, I made a lot of new friends and I would definitely come back, said Wayne Garrus, 10.” Iyana Arrington, 13, added, “BizTechKids was fun and useful, I think the program should be longer! Creating the app was so cool, I did mine on fashion.”

BizTechKids is an initiative of the Entrepreneurial Development & Assistance Center (EDAC), and funded by a grant from the US Department of Education. Program participants will be honored at a closing ceremony today in the MSU Student Center beginning at 2:00 p.m.
