The Innovate Alabama HBCU Innovation Experience is coming to an HBCU campus near YOU for Innovation Power Hours! 

Students and faculty will participate in various digital skills learning labs throughout the Innovation Power Hour. These rotating stations will feature the latest Apple equipment and showcase various technologies and concepts, including the Apple SWIFT programming language, coding design principles, and augmented reality with oculus equipment, to name a few. It’s an opportunity for students and faculty to engage with emerging technology that can be incorporated into their curriculum, identify internship opportunities and obtain industry-level certifications for employment.

We understand the time of year is extremely hectic and recognize participants may need to come and go throughout the session. Those who engage in each session will be eligible for prizes at the event’s conclusion; prizes include Apple AirPods, Beats headphones, etc.

It’s a fun and interactive environment to demonstrate the art of the possible with digital skills. Our goal is to reinvigorate excitement around information technology, computer science, and digital skill development to elevate minority tech talent and entrepreneurs at Alabama HBCUs.
